A Skins Win is Like Pizza and Sex

Even when it's bad, it's good. It may not have been pretty, but yesterday's 25-17 win over the truly pathetic Lions was still a mark in the W column for the Skins. We tried like hell to give it away (8 penalties for 67 yards, 2 fumbles, 1 lost), but in the end, the Lions couldn't overcome the fact that their entire team did not cover as many yards as Moss (140 yds receiving and an 80-yd PR) and Portis (126 yds rushing and a 6-yd reception). Did I mention Campbell (230 passes w/ out an INT - knock wood) had a near perfect game (23 for 28, 127.4 QB rating)? Did I mention CP became only the 2nd player in NFL history to run over 120 yards in 5 consecutive games twice in his career? The first was OJ. Even with all that, we went in to the locker room at the half down by 4 points. Not only that, but we were the first team all year to allow the Lions to score in the first quarter! Previously, they were outscored 55-0 in the 1st Q. Yet, somehow, we managed to pull a win out of our asses. I worry about next week's game against the Steelers, but hopefully, we will continue to play to the level of our competition, and bring the pain.
