Lions searching for a defensive base after two weeks

DETROIT (AP) Two games into the season, Detroit Lions coach Dan Campbell is still trying to find a foundation for his struggling defense.

After giving up 41 points in a season-opening loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the Lions allowed 35 in an 18-point loss on Monday night. Only the Atlanta Falcons (80) have allowed more points in their first two games than Detroit.

"We're looking for guys who are going to challenge the perimeter and we're looking for guys who are going to rally to the football," Campbell said. "If you watched Alex Anzalone, he was all over the field last night. Was he perfect? No, but he was in on almost every tackle. That's the kind of guy we're looking for."
