After showing some mettle last Sunday vs. the Vikings coming back from 20-0 in the first half, the Lions showed that they could not only play from ahead and sustain a lead, but also play from behind and take the win. This impressed the talking heads enough on NFL.com that they climbed 4 spots to reach number 3 on the Power rankings. This puts them behind only the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints.
I am unbelievably stoked about this. While attention makes me kind of nervous, this team deserves it. I just think me as a fan needs to get used to people saying good things about my Detroit Lions.
