NFL Power Rankings for Week 2
The Detroit Lions after a very rare, during the Matt Millen era, road victory 36-21 over the Oakland Raiders Week 1 probably should expect to move up the NFL Power Rankings. Your ‘Lion Eyes’ blogger went out and reviewed some of the organizations that keep weekly NFL Power Rankings throughout the season. In an earlier post I reported on Week 1 Power Rankings for the Lions by the same entities.

Peter Schrager dropped the Lions 2 spots from the Week 1 Power Rankings to 26th.
Year two of the Mike Martz era started off with some offensive fireworks in Oakland on Sunday. The Lions offense tallied 392 yards, put 36 points on the scoreboard, and moved only nine games within Jon Kitna’s off-season prediction of 10 victories. Detroit’s defense held its own, despite a mid-game, 17-point lapse. Just how good is that Lions offense? We should have a better idea after Sunday.
