VIDEO: Watch Alex Smith Run Forever Because The Lions are Pitiful
There's something about the Detroit Lions' complete and utter inability to play football that is actually starting to be impressive. The now 1-7 Lions are in last place in the NFC North - because they are better at sucking than even the Chicago Bears are - and apparently their apathy and ineptitude on the field is of equal or greater magnitude across the Atlantic in London.
Nothing illustrates this point more perfectly than this 49-yard rush by Chiefs' quarterback Alex Smith; the signature moment of Kansas City's royal (pun intended!) 45-10 beat down at Wembley Stadium.
My dude rushed for a gain of nearly fifty yards and then RAN OUT OF BOUNDS. The Lions sad excuse for a defense couldn't even muster up a goddamned tackle for good measure. Sure, Alex Smith is a respectably mobile quarterback but he's not Adrian Peterson.
Smith finished the game with five carries for 78 yards and a touchdown as the Chiefs' second-leading rusher, and tacked on another 145 yards passing and two more touchdowns.
Meanwhile the Detroit Lions entire offense rushed 14 times for a total of 81 yards. Don't worry though, the Lions passing game sucked too! Matt Stafford went 22/36 for 217 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and was sacked six times for a total loss of 32 yards.
So you know, all-in-all, it's still a pretty terrible time to be a Lions fan.
