NFL Week 2 Open Thread: Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers

There are lot of things to love about this matchup, besides the handshake at the end of the game between Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz.

Really, any time you get a chance to watch Calvin Johnson (AKA Megatron) and Matthew Stafford against a Partick Willis led defense, you should. This is a 49er defense that held the Packers to 22 points in Lambeau Field last week. Meanwhile, the 49ers offense is trying to convince the league that last week's 30 points was no fluke. Alex Smith threw for 211 yards and 2 touchdowns last week, one of which was to Randy Moss.

Don't forget, last week, David Akers added his name to the history books with a record-tying 63 yard field goal.
