"Without the takeaway they are rather bad." Wow... really? I'm guessing that, if you take passing TDs away from the Patriot's offense, it wouldn't be all that great, would it? If you take away the best part of a unit, it probably wouldn't be all that impressive... but, the point is that the Lions have been forcing many turnovers with a game plan, not luck. Expect the trend to continue.
I still find this thread funny.
The Lions rank
28th in yards
23rd in points
23 in 3rd down %
30th in 1st downs allowed per game
Yeah I'd say that's pretty damn bad. The fact that they get all those turnovers and still rank that low(particularly yards and points) just make it worse. Face it the Lions defense is still not good.
