Chamorro footballer scores first NFL touchdown in Detroit Lions win

20 September 2017, 01:07 | Jermaine Blake

The NFL awarded Detroit a number of nationally televised games this year and Stafford and Co. did not disappoint.

Today's Early Bird Report includes some very high praise for Julio Jones from a Hall-of-Famer as well as a look at the Lions' 24-10 victory against the New York Giants on Monday night. In the end, having all ten fingers really made a difference, unlike last December's loss at MetLife Stadium.

Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter left Greg Robinson on an island, and he unsurprisingly struggled. That dates back to when Martha Firestone Ford fired everybody.

Hello, running game! Against all odds, the Lions running game came alive against arguably the best rushing defense in the league. the lions totaled 138 yards on the ground.

It is the ignorance of offseason moves by management to ignore adding depth let alone talent to the offensive line that is coming home to roost, a major reason why the Giants are 0-2. It was a lead that the Lions never looked back from. The first-year receiver is already the ideal complement to the vertically challenged Marvin Jones and Golden Tate. Manning was sacked five times and was hit eight other times. And it isn't just the sacks, the pressure being put on both Carson Palmer and Eli Manning was consistently daunting. He missed multiple tackles in the first quarter and abandoned his assignment on tight end Evan Engram, which resulted in a touchdown in the second. The may not yet, but this is the most hard part of their schedule and their already 2-0. But it was effective for building a lead in the first half. Collins went so far as to call a Week 3 game, this Sunday at Philadelphia, a "must-win".

I did some homework and I call this The 20-point rule.

With the Lions leading 17-10 in the fourth, Jamal Agnew took a punt 88 yards to the house. No talks about being contenders or possibly one of the teams to watch in the NFC after two weeks of the season. The Cardinals scored 23 but Stafford's pick-six doesn't count against Austin's defense.

US Will Stay in Paris Climate Agreement After All
Staying in the accord is not out of the realm of possibility if that happens, as the Secretary of State said on Sunday, Sep.17. Under the pact, the U.S. had committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 26-28 percent below its 2005 level by 2025.

The meeting with the Falcons went down as a sure loss when playing the "schedule game" as soon as the schedule was released last April but now that the week of the game is here, it is looking like it will be a competitive game. In both games this season, Stafford has logged a 71 percent completion percentage. For the first time in what seems like an eternity, the Lions had a competent rushing attack.

"That was the biggest turning point in the game in my opinion", guard T.J. Lang said.

The Giants ultimately settled for a field goal on the drive before going on to lose by two touchdowns.

Check out some of the reactions to last night's primetime game below.

The problem here is that the Giants may not realistically have that much time. We've got to do better.

The Lions won, 24-10. Things slowed down in the second half as the Lions ran the ball to milk the clock.

For the 54th consecutive game, the Detroit Lions did not have a 100-yard rusher in a game.
