|Lions Roll Past Rams for 1st Win This Season
|DETROIT (AP) -- Stefan Logan's 105-yard kickoff return broke a tie and the Detroit Lions rolled to a 44-6 win over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, snapping a 10-game losing streak.
Detroit's' first victory of the year was its most-lopsided win since beating the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars 44-0 in 1995.
Logan's franchise-record tying score helped the Lions (1-4) outscore St. Louis 21-3 in the second quarter and they didn't let up.
The Rams (2-3) lost standout receiver Mark Clayton with an injured knee in the first quarter and that played a part in rookie Sam Bradford having an awful game.
Shaun Hill threw for 227 yards and connected with Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and Nate Burleson for scores. He has started since Matthew Stafford separated his right shoulder in Week 1.
