Lions First 100 Yard Rusher In Five Years Helps Pull Upset Over Patriots
The Lions beating the Patriots was a big surprise, but it's nothing compared to what Kerryon Johnson did.
Johnson became the first Lions running back to rack up 100 yards rushing in one game since 2013!
You read that right. It's been 5 years since Reggie Bush did it against the Packers. That's 70 games of Detroit running backs getting stuffed over and over and over again.
The Lions wasted no time in honoring Johnson by naming him player of the game on Twitter.
The big question for the Lions is what now?
After the season got off to such a shaky start, is the team ready to turn the corner? Everyone agrees that the Patriots are not the power house that they have been in the past, but they're still a good team.
Will this be the moment that the Lions use to get the season rolling?
