The San Francisco 49ers will encounter another very strong offensive team when they line up against the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
The 49ers, who defeated the favored Green Bay Packers last week, will look to add on to their already terrifying array of accolades shown in the Packers win by knocking off Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and the Lions in the Candlestick Park home opener.
San Francisco has been dealt another team that will throw the ball at will.
Detroit needed a come-from-behind win against he Rams in Week 1 and will look to exploit the 49ers at the one wavering aspect of their entire package: the secondary.
Just like the Packers, the Lions will let Stafford throw the ball, just as he did when he threw 48 times in Week 1. Stafford found 10 different receivers on Sunday, with five of them tallying over four receptions. In comparison, Aaron Rodgers accomplished the same feat last week.
This will be a pass-happy offense coming at the 49ers on Sunday.

There’s no doubt in my mind that Johnson will be ready to go this week.
A week after taking down the Packers, the San Francisco 49ers welcome the Detroit Lions to the Bay Area.
The Lions also won their opener, over St. Louis, but it was a struggle for Matt Stafford and the Lions. Stafford threw three interceptions last week compared to zero by Alex Smith, though it is, of course, foolish to form judgements after one week of football.
This game is a...

Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz….Handshake Part II could be really interesting!
