For the second straight week in a row, the Detroit Lions pulled off an upset to earn a big win and keep their undefeated streak alive. Considering how daunting the beginning of the schedule looked in the offseason, an 2-0-1 start is a fantastic place to be, regardless of the Loins’ lack of style points.

The Lions beat the Philadelphia Eagles in a big road game. When we look back in December, that’s all that’s truly going to matter. But what does Sunday’s performance tell us about this team’s identity? Will the Lions eventually get their issues ironed out? Will the conservative coaching ever end?

And what about Jamal Agnew’s resurgence? And the pass protection finally holding up in consecutive games?

We talk about all of that and so, so much more on this week’s episode of the PODcast.
