X-rays on David Johnson's wrist come back negative, report says

In addition to the two interceptions, the Lions limited the Cardinals offense to 118 yards in the first half, but they got on track in the third quarter, driving 94 yards for a touchdown with their first possession.

And even though the offense sputtered much of the first half, they got it together in time to surge past Arizona for an all-too-familiar fourth-quarter comeback.

The Lions defense would come through again in the second quarter when safety Glover Quin intercepted another Palmer overthrow.

His first touchdown, a 10-yarder, displayed the 6-foot-4, 213-pound receiver's catch radius and leaping ability. Golladay is nowhere near Johnson's level yet - remember, he's just a rookie, only caught four of seven targets for 69 yards and will surely have growing pains in the future - but this was an impressive start.

The Lions defense will work hard defending the Cardinals.

Golladay was the Lions' third-round selection in this year's draft.

Our models rank Jones as the 49th-best receiver in Week 1 with 3.6 receptions, 47.2 yards and 0.2 touchdowns. Three Lions converged on him for the tackle and brought him down quickly.

Both teams are coming off preseason losses, the Cardinals fell 2-30 to the Broncos while the Lions suffered a 17-27 loss to the Bills.

Stafford completed 29 of 41 passes for 292 yards and four touchdowns. Punter Kasey Redfern dropped a snap in the Lions end zone and was injured when he then tried to run for the first down. He was replaced on kickoff returns in the second half by Agnew.
