Detroit Lions Opponents Recap: Week 1

Throughout the season, I will take a look at how all of the opponents left on the Detroit Lions schedule perform. With one week in the books, we now have a better idea of what awaits the Lions during the rest of the 2011 season. Of course, one game isn't much of a sample size, but it's interesting to see if what happened in Week 1 has changed your thoughts about the remainder of the Lions schedule.
