Thoughts after 3 quarters, Lions, Broncos

This should be Rule No. 1 for the Lions: When they are up by 35 points, Matthew Stafford should not be in the game.

- The Lions' defensive line has re-established themselves as one of the best in the NFL. They have really put the pressure on Tim Tebow today. Lots of sacks.

- There still have to be concerns about the Lions ability to stop the run. This game wasn't much of a test in that regard. Once the Lions' got the lead, and the Broncos were forced to pass, it was off the table. Denver was without Willis McGahee, easily the Broncos' best running back.

- Calvin Johnson is a truly a great player. He is having one of the best seasons a receiver has ever had. He is unstoppable.

- Stafford has distinguished himself today. Tim Tebow has not. In fact, he has been embarrassed.
