NFL Power Rankings Week 2 Lions land in the 20s across the board

Murray was 15 of 19 for 154 yards and two touchdowns during the fourth-quarter comeback.

The tie hurts, there's no doubt about that.

Luckily for Lions fans, Hockenson has made that transition seem seamless, earning his way to a starting spot over free agent acquisition Jesse James, and judging by how he played in Week 1, he has that starting spot locked down for a while. The big plays are a 39-yard completion to tight end T.J. Hockensen, a 12-yard run by Stafford and then a penalty on rookie defensive lineman Zach Allen on fourth down to give Detroit a first down.

Their debut made Sunday's game one of the most anticipated in franchise history. He's good to go. Wide receivers Kenny Galladay (1,063 yards) and Marvin Jones (508 yards) will be Stafford's go to receiving targets, along with rookie tight ends Jesse James and rookie T.J. Hockenson.

Hockenson burst onto the National Football League scene on Sunday with a historic debut, racking up 124 yards and a touchdown in his debut, making it the best debut for a tight end in National Football League history.

Murray hit David Johnson on a 27-yard pass for his first NFL TD pass, found Larry Fitzgerald on a 4-yard score with 43 seconds left and connected with Christian Kirk on a 2-point conversion to send the game to overtime. If Stafford continues to trust him, we could see great production from both.

Aside from the rapport Stafford is building with his receivers, the Lions also face some favorable pass defenses this season including matchups against the Eagles, Chiefs, Buccaneers, and Raiders.

The Lions score first not quite one minute into the second quarter. The team did struggle a bit on third and short plays on the ground. "We can finish the game". They looked to be cruising to a season-opening win where the defense had been dominant and the offense done enough. Defensively, the Cardinals combined for 3 interceptions and a forced fumble while Vontarrius Dora had a sack and Nate Brooks and Dennis Gardeck recording a team-high 6 tackles with Brooks registering one interception and the previously mentioned forced fumble.

And the Lions were the team that couldn't hold a 24-6 lead and were lucky to get a tie.

Lions DT Damon Harrison told fans on Twitter that the loss was on him.

It's the second straight year a game ended in a tie in the first week after the Browns and Steelers did the same thing last year.

The Cardinals won the coin toss and scored a field goal.

The Lions will return home to take on the Los Angeles Chargers (1-0), who just beat the Andrew Luck-less Colts, 30-24.
