Lions earn first victory by blowing out Rams

DETROIT -- Stefan Logan's 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown broke a tie, and the Lions rolled to a 44-6 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday to stop a 10-game losing streak.

Detroit's first victory of the season 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 the Rams 21-3 in the second quarter, and they didn't let up.

The Rams (2-3) lost standout wide receiver Mark Clayton with an injured knee in the first quarter, and that played a part in rookie quarterback Sam Bradford having an awful game.

Shaun Hill threw for 227 yards and connected with Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and Nate Burleson for scores. Hill has started ever since Matthew Stafford separated his right shoulder in Week 1.
