Jahvid Best had never topped 80 yards rushing.
Best racked up 172 total yards on just 16 touches, rushing for 163 yards and an 88-yard touchdown run that ranked as the second-longest in Detroit Lions history en route the Lions going 5-0 to start the season for the first time since the 50s.
It's what Lions fans, and Best owners had waited forever for. But Best wasn't the only big performance over the weekend.
Frank Gore had his second straight 100-yard game after seemingly being left for dead in the first three weeks of the season as the surprising San Francisco 49ers put it on the Tampa Bay Bucs in the most lopsided game of the year so far. Then there's Ben Roethlisberger, who threw for five touchdown passes in a resounding win over the Tennessee Titans.
As for goats, it all starts with Kevin Kolb, who's had his moments this season but was unable to do anything of significance against the Minnesota Vikings, whose defense entered the game ranked No. 28 in the league against the pass and was missing its best cornerback, Antoine Winfield.
