On Sunday, the Detroit Lions looked like a hell of a football team as they went into Miami and defeated the Dolphins 32-21.
In the game, the Lions accomplished something they have not accomplished in over 20 years.
On Sunday, the Lions rushed for 248 yards as a team. That is the most team rushing yards they have since November 23, 1997 when they totaled 249 yards.
On that day, it was the great Barry Sanders who led the way with 24 carries for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Lions defeated the Jim Harbaugh-led Indianapolis Colts 32-10.

Today, it was rookie Kerryon Johnson who was amazing as he carried the ball 19 times for 158 yards.
The pride came before the fall for Mark Dantonio’s Spartans in 21-7 loss to Michigan
Mark Dantonio is the master of using bulletin board material to help motivate his football team. In fact, I would be willing to bet he had a plethora of material that he presented to his team prior to their matchup on Saturday against their biggest rival, the Michigan Wolverines. One of his goals is to convince his players (and probably himself) that they are being unrightfully disrespected by their opponents on a weekly basis.
Who can blame Dantonio for using this strategy? After all, he has won multiple Big 10 titles, beat Michigan in 8 of the past 10 matchups heading into Saturday, and he even found a way to get the Spartans to a College Football Playoff.
But on Saturday, Dantonio made a huge mistake and his team would end up paying for it in a big way.
You see, during warmups, the Spartans were reportedly about 10 minutes late coming out onto the field. When the finally arrived, some of the Michigan players were already going through some of their own warmups around midfield.
This is when Spartans players got in a line and locked arms before beginning their 100-yard walk across the field. While they did this, Dantonio walked about five yards behind them.
