While the Detroit Lions only have one win out of four games, their three losses have been close calls.
They lost by three points against the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks.
The Minnesota Vikings defeated them by four points.
The Lions delivered the points in those games, only to fall short.
That’s why they had to refute a claim by a Twitter user named Bill Loraff.
We have the No. 1 scoring offense in the NFL. https://t.co/k5rs08ZAe4

Loraff tweeted, “Get a new offensive coordinator who knows what plays to call.”
To which the Lions responded with, “We have the No. 1 scoring offense in the NFL.
Unlike the previous seasons, the Lions are not finding it hard to put points on the board this year.
Aside from leading the league with an average of 35 points per game, they also have the most yards per game at 436.8.
The Lions are ranked fifth in passing yards (272.8) and sixth in rushing yards (164) per game.
Detroit is also tied for most passing touchdowns with 11 and tied for the third-fewest interceptions with three.
They are tied for second-most rushing yards with seven and lead in average yards per carry with 5.9.
The Lions also average 283 receiving yards per game, the fifth-best in the league through four games.
Lions Struggle On Defense
Unfortunately, their offensive prowess is negated by their defensive problems.
They surrender the most points (35.3) and most yards (444.8) per game.
The Lions have the third-worst pass defense, giving up 279.3 yards per game.
They are also ranked 30th in rushing defense, allowing 165.5 per game.
The Lions defense will have to improve a bit to give them more victories.
They can start to elevate their game when they face the New England Patriots in Week 5.
