Congratulations to the Detroit Lions for an impressive win against the Saint Louis Rams in Detroit.  It has been a long time since football fans have witnessed a dominating performance such as that.  I would claim before the game that the Detroit Lions would need help to win and I was very wrong.  Help was not needed at all.
