Thoughts on the first half of Lions-Chiefs game

- Matthew Stafford's emergence is even more evident in this game than last week. He'd have nearly 300 yards passing by now were it not for two big passing plays that were called back. He also looks more athletic. He's done some good escaping from the pocket.

- You know the Chiefs are in trouble because their leading tacklers today are safeties who are slow by NFL standards, Jon McGraw and Sabby Piscitelli. They badly miss Eric Berry.

- The complexion of this game changed immediately when Jamaal Charles was hurt. The Lions defense was having trouble matching up with his speed.

- Tony Sheffler looks like a different player this season compared to last year.

- Lions are all about Stafford and the passing game right now. Lack of running attack a concern against better opponents.
