Donovan McNabb benched late as Matthew Stafford spurs Lions in return
DETROIT -- It's about time the Detroit Lions start to see a return from their top draft picks.After so many years of first-round busts, Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and latest top pick Ndamukong Suh have the Lions believing they are on the road to respectability.
• Detroit has four wins since the start of last season and two of them are against the Redskins.
• Calvin Johnson became the first Lion with at least three TD receptions in a game since Roy Williams in 2005.
• The Lions have now scored at least 30 points in three games this season after scoring 30 just once in the 2008 and 2009 seasons combined.
• The Redskins scored on a kickoff return for the first time since Rock Cartwright did so in 2006.
