The Sun God ends Player of the Week drought for Lions


The Lions haven't had a receiver win NFC Offensive Player of the Week since a man known as Megatron -- in 2015.

The Sun God has ended the drought.

Amon-Ra St. Brown took home the honors in Week 2 after lighting up the Commanders for 184 total yards and two touchdowns -- and setting an NFL record with his sixth straight game of at least eight catches and a touchdown.

He also tied an NFL record shared by Antonio Brown and Michael Thomas with his eighth straight game of at least eight catches.

He also tied a franchise record set by Herman Moore with his sixth straight game with a touchdown catch.

Your friendly reminder that 16 receivers were taken before St. Brown in last year's draft, including the likes of Tutu Atwell and D'Wayne Eskridge, and that the five receivers taken directly ahead of him have produced 71 catches for 943 yards and three touchdowns.

St. Brown has 107 catches for 1,092 yards and eight touchdowns by himself.

For what it's worth, St. Brown also has more rushing yards than every other receiver in his draft. He turned two carries into 68 yards against Washington, including a 58-yard end-around in the third quarter that changed the game.

And Dan Campbell said this week the Lions "haven't even really tapped into" St. Brown's abilities out of the backfield. "Yet."

The Sun God is shining on Detroit.
