For those of you keeping track, the Lions did in fact—after confirming with NASA and running some preliminary laboratory tests—won their season-opener against Tampa Bay, and are looking more and more like a team that is dangerously legit!
This began late last season, picked up in the 2011 preseason and was sealed with a kiss in Detroit's road-opener against a solid Tampa Bay squad.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, had no answer for Buffalo's Ryan Fitzpatrick and TE Scott Chandler.
Chandler is a three-year journeyman who never really established himself anywhere, and the Bills aren't exactly the greatest team on paper.
The Lions' defense is methodically sound, especially in coverage.
They are incredibly difficult to run against—and, oh yeah, instead of Scott Chandler they have Calvin Johnson, Nate Burleson and their own TE in Brandon Pettigrew.
Good luck with those guys, Kansas City.
Prediction: Detroit 27, Kansas City 9
