The Lions have players who will get yards after contact. Matthew Stafford has put up big numbers every season since coming into the league, and led the team to the playoffs last season despite having his best weapon in Calvin Johnson retire suddenly after the 2015 season.

In the third quarter, the Cardinals offense-which had mustered just one field goal through 30 minutes of football-finally warmed up, with quarterback Carson Palmer stringing together two long drives, even as star tailback David Johnson watched from the sidelines with an injury. The Lions will gain yards, but the defense won't be able to get off the field if they give up cheap yards after contact. After a 25-yard return set the Lions up inside Arizona territory, Stafford steered the offense 42 yards in 11 plays, finding Marvin Jones in the end zone on a broken play for a six-yard score.

ACT results show 'steady' growth among Louisiana students, superintendent says
Sixty-nine percent of Kansas students this year met the English college readiness benchmark, compared to 61 percent nationally. Georgia's overall composite score improved, as did scores in each subject: English, reading, math, and science.

Golladay was one of the heroes in the Lions' 35-23 win over the Arizona Cardinals in their season opener.

Well, those lucky enough to select Johnson probably high up in their respective drafts were panicking as much as Arizona fans were as their Cardinals found themselves in an ugly battle with the Lions on Sunday.

He said he took some hope from the fact that Chelsea's Russian owner Roman Abramovich has "settled down" in his spending. We are being destroyed and this is going to damage the industry".

The throw had been intended for Golden Tate, but the receiver was knocked off his route by a nasty jam by linebacker Josh Bynes, resulting in the easy turnover. And second-year defense end Anthony Zettel posted the Lions' only sack of the game, and just the second of his career.

And it's also bad for fantasy football owners across the nation. Three Lions converged on him for the tackle and brought him down quickly.
