Detroit might be the best football team in the league, as they showed by beating-down the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.
We all thought Detroit would take the next step this year, but we expected that step to be 10-6.
Think a little higher.
In my mind, there is one team in the NFL that should beat Detroit, and that is the Green Bay Packers. That's right, I'm saying the Lions, the helpless kitties that went 0-16 a few years ago, are the second-best team in the league.
Sorry, New England, I'm not apologizing.
This Lions team has shown the ability to come back from large deficits, to put away teams with the running game, how to score a ton of points, and, more importantly, how to play absolutely suffocating defense.
We could all see the potential of this defense with Nick Fairley in the line-up against the Bears, and it's frightening.
Instead of 10-6, the Lions are starting to look like a No. 1 seed in the NFC, if they can beat Green Bay.
