The 49ers' defense is allowing LESS points than the Lions (Don't tell the NFL Network)





The NFL Network, after switching out the headline "Are the 49ers Legit" to talk about how the Eagles are going to make the playoffs, Reported about the upcoming 49ers-Lions games with the heading "The Lions are still perfect." The reporter started out saying the Lions are the only team that is top 5 in offensive scoring and top 5 in keeping teams from scoring on defense.

I’m not questioning the technical accuracy of this statement, I’m questioning why they didn’t mention, since we are playing them tomorrow, that the 49ers have allowed FEWER points than the Lions on defense, AND - get this - they are the 6th best team in scoring.

Why would they leave this out? It puts us virtually on the same level in these two categories. As a matter of fact, statistically speaking these two teams are virtually indistinguishable. Wouldn’t that make a much better story? I call it lazy reporting. Sports press is literally going out of their way to slight the 49ers’ fans week after week. It’s not even funny. I wonder if they are even going to give the 49ers deserved credit after they kick the Lions puffy tails this Sunday, probably not.
