The winless Detroit Lions are ahead of the Panthers, on the road, 10-0.
Daunte Culpepper has thrown a touchdown pass to Calvin Johnson, and rookie runner Kevin Smith has already rushed for 76 yards in the contest. He also has 15 yards as a receiver out of the backfield.
Carolina has done zilch on offense against one of the league’s worst defenses. DeAngelo Williams has 6 yards on two carries, and Steve Smith doesn’t have a catch.
It’s very early, though…
