Lions Roar Past Kansas City

DETROIT -- The Detroit Lions had a ho - hum attitude about the most lopsided regular - season win in franchise history. Matthew Stafford threw two of his four touchdown passes to Calvin Johnson and Detroit routed the Kansas City Chiefs 48 - 3 Sunday, matching the 45 - point win it had over Cleveland in the 1957 NFL title game.

Detroit broke its regular - season record set with a 44 - 0 win over the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars in 1995. Detroit, 2 - 0, looks as if it just might be the breakout team some expect this season. The Chiefs, 0 - 2, were expected to be competitive after winning the AFC West last season, but they're losing games and players at an alarming rate. Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles was carted off the field midway through the first quarter with an injured left knee. A source familiar with the situation said that Charles will likely miss the rest of the 2011 season after an initial diagnosis revealed a torn ACL in his left knee.
