    Lions again can't punch it in from the Red Zone. Hanson misses a chip shot FG attempt. They come away with 0 points.

    Wow, what a HUGE penalty on the Bears. 4th and inches from the 1.5 yard line, the Lions go for it (or at least line up as if they are) and Tommie Harris jumps offsides.

    The Lions got stuffed on the next play, but I think they just need to pound it 2 more times. If they don't get in, they need to kick the field goal and make it a 2 possession game.

    What was that, 6 straight plays inside the 2 and they can't get in the end zone. This team is garbage in the red zone. On the rare occasion that they actually call a running play, it's a very poorly designed one. You need a yard and a half and you call a toss sweep 5 yards behind the line???? This is far from the first time Martz has called a running play that requires 5 yards just to get back to the line when all they need is 1 or 2 yards.

    They should hire a running play co-ordinator who's only job is to call the plays when the Lions decide to run.

    Lions are halfway to Kitna's 10-win pledge.

    Great win today. The D played well, especially the secondary, forcing 4 turnovers. Other than a few plays, they tackled ok as well.

    The O moved the ball extremely well between the 20's, but just didn't get it done in the red zone.

    The O-line did a nice job opening holes for KJ, who had 105 yards on the ground. They did give up 4 sacks, but a couple of those were "coverage sacks" where Kitna held onto the ball too long.

    Overall a very nice performance.

    5-2 baby and a sweep of the Bears this season! :sweeping:

    Another win for the Lions as the defense is finally learning how to play including picking off 4 INT's including 3 in the endzone...

    Kevin Jones rushes for 105 yards...somebody help me here and advise when the last time the Lions had a back hit the century mark?

    Still a long way from my 9-7 prediction, but 5-2 gives a team some confidence even it the W's were vs some scrub teams...

    KJ had 110 rushing yards against ATL Week 9 of last season. I think that was the last 100 yard rushing game for the Lions. So almost a full season between 100 yard rushing games. Ouch.

    Thanks Jammer....looks like he may be back and the offensive line is doing better too>>> As you indicated earlier the sacks were probably because Kitna held on the rock to long. Marinelli, Martz and Millen have to realize that the Lions do have a running game and utilize it. Otherwise Millen will be drafting Mario Manningham next June:)

    offense sputtered in the red zone, missing a 29 FGA and then failing to get the TD after 5 or 6 chances at the goal line, but hey A ROAD WIN, in fact 2 in one season...when is the last time they got 2 road wins in one season.....Jammer?

    D59 you were just quessing...nice.
    Roys boneheadedness will come back to bite us/him. I could've sworn he caught that pass at the 3 yd line then we kick a 40 yd FG. Did I miss something?
    I thought Kevin Endzone Jones fumbled because he wore down. They barely touched the ball.
    HUGE LION ROARING ROAD WIN !!!
    Denver is gonna get it too next week.
    Bears dropped like 10 passes and Griese missed 5 more times.
    Best catch of the day was S. McDonalds sliding grab.
    I'm almost excited. WWWWWWeeeeeee!

    I'll give them credit. A road win is always nice. 5-2...very nice.

    But they looked horrible against Philly and Washington. Have the Lions beaten a good team yet?

    I think it's too early to get really excited.
