Trash beat Trash

The Detroit Lions beat the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday 26-12, ending the Lions five game losing streak.

Detroit's rookie running back Kevin Jones had a career game rushing for 196 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. Jones had a 74 yard run, the longest run by a Lions' running back since Barry Sanders was on the team. Jones now has 703 rushing yards on the season.

Joey Harrington had a decent game throwing for 196 yards along with a touchdown and an interception. He play good enough to win this game but he still did not play that great.

Jason Hanson kicked 4 fieldgoals on the day for the Lions.

The Lions' defense won the game for them. They picked off fomer Michigan quarterback John Navarre 4 times. Dre Bly had 2 of those picks. James Hall had one inteception and one sack on the day. The sack gave him 9.5 on the season.

The Lions did play a pretty good game but they beat a bad team. The Cardinals are horrible and this game was in Detroit. We can't get carried away and think the Lions have now turned it around and will somehow sneak into the playoffs. They go to Green Bay next week where they have not won since Brett Favre has been the Packers starting quarterback.
