Where are the Lion fans? 4-0 with 3 road wins so far. It used to take the Lions 2 or 3 years to get 4 wins. Sometimes 3 or 4 years to get 3 road wins. How is everyone else's teams doing?

Life long Steelers fan.

Very proud of, and pulling for, both the Lions and Bills to have a great season.

Looks like we're going to have a very long season with a nice break in January.

Well I just couldn't help but jump in on this one. Da Bears all the way! The lions will be handed their first loss come Monday. As long as Cutler doesn't get killed in the first half, I predict a win.

They are not going to the BOWL because their defense isn't good enough... however I'm Happy to see them FINALLY do good. I know its like once in a blue moon ... what do you expect its Detroit!

Peyton Manning is injured and not playing, so I've checked out for football until he returns although it's cool to see the Bengals pull out some tough games.It's looking like a Pacjers repeat to me they are on a mission!Allan

Nah, no superbowl for the Lions. I am still just hoping they even make the playoffs. I doubt they will get to 5-0 but they do seem like they might be able to make the playoffs. They don't exactly have the toughest schedule this year. It would really be nice to change the losing culture around here with the Lions for more than a few seasons.

5-0. What a start for such a traditionally bad club. It feels good to finally see some wins. But for godsake, can we get a freaking running game going?

88yd rushing TD isn't a running game?

I watched the first half of the game and if it wasn't for penalties I think the bears would have only had one good drive the whole half. How is that not good defense? Teams would love to have the lions front 4 right now. I agree they don't have much of a running game right now. Best averages only 3-4 yards per carry I think. Yes he broke free and ran for an 88 yard TD, but they still need to work on the running game. I grew up in Michigan and have been a lions fan my whole life and live in Indy now, so its so nice to see the table has turned. Lions 5-0 for the first time since 1956 and the Colts are 0-5. Its a hell of a turn around since 2008 and their 0-16 year. The lions have now won there last 9 straight regular season games, if you include the pre-season thats 13 straight wins.

You can't use this year's Colts as an example of an 0-5 team and fall from greatness. They lost their best player, actually the leagues best player and ultimately the best QB of all time to injury the Colts losing every game is testament to how good manning is if he were playing they'd probably be 5-0 too.Allan

While I will agree with you, however their defense is horrible. Painter and the offense gave them a 24 point lead on sunday and the defense lost them the game. The colts defense has sucked the past few years however they had Manning to overcome the downfall of the D. One player shouldn't make or break a team no matter who it is.

However, it is still nice to tell all my colts friends to shove it, since they have always talked bad about Detroit and wouldn't listen to me last year when I said the lions would be something to deal with in a year or two.

Now back to the Lions .. They deserve some good fortune after being the laughin stock on the league for almost a decade. Megatron must be loving it. Change in management has OBVIOUSLY helped

5-0 is good and all but the Lions still have a ways to go. It's a great start but there is a long season ahead and they really need a better running game. The defense is playing good but there is still room for improvement and the team as a whole really needs to cut down on the penalities.
