Lions Vs. Saints Score: Matthew Stafford To Calvin Johnson Gives Detroit 14-7 Lead

The Detroit Lions are playing well enough to hold a touchdown lead over the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Wild Card. The Lions are holding a 14-7 lead over the Saints thanks to a 13-yard pass from Matthew Stafford to Calvin Johnson for a touchdown. The Lions offense is on it's game and they look sharp.

In a little over a quarter, the Lions have had drives of eight plays (80 yards) and nine plays 87) yards and both have gone for touchdowns. That's a good indication that the Lions are going to be able to move the ball and score a lot of points in this game. The Saints can do the same but they haven't seen many teams who can match their firepower like the Lions can.

The Lions are heavy underdogs in this game considering the Saints haven't lost at home all year. It's still early but it appears as if the Lions will make a game out of this.
