FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — For all the Detroit Lions' shortcomings over their first four games, one constant had been their offense's ability to score.

2, 32. DETROIT LIONS (3-13-1)
LAST SEASON: The Lions lost their first eight games and went 0-2-1 over the next three before finally winning a game. They closed with a relatively encouraging 3-3 finish in coach Dan Campbell's first full year as a head coach.
The Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams should have plenty of company sitting out the first round of the NFL draft next week.

While some teams may be tempted to follow a similar path for success - the Denver Broncos just agreed to send a massive haul to Seattle for Russell Wilson - even the Rams know it’s not a wave of the future in the NFL.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — It's difficult if not impossible to downplay the importance of having a top-level quarterback to win a Super Bowl. Or even get to it.

Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell had a play sheet in his left hand and a walkie-talkie in his right hand during a recent practice.
