Detroit Lions loss to Bills proves they’re not true contenders

The Detroit Lions may be the most overrated team in the NFL. Don’t believe me? Remember that 6-3 start last year before they finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs? I sure do. With a 3-1 record, the Lions should have easily moved to 4-1 after hosting the Buffalo Bills, with Kyle Orton making his first start.
