The Detroit Lions first team offense tore through the Oakland Raiders defense, but preseason games aren't won by the first team. It's usually the guys that won't make the team.

Detroit stormed out to an early lead that likely would have held had the starters hung around. Yet, the defense never looked good regardless of who was out there.

It's okay though. It might be "real" football, but it doesn't matter. Yet.

Lions 26, Raiders 27.
