Saints Embarrass Lions

DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Lions own a dubious piece of NFL history - with perhaps more on the way. Detroit became the first 0-15 team ever when it was routed 42-7 by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The Lions will try to avoid an perfectly awful season in the finale at Green Bay, where they haven't won since 1991. Drew Brees threw for 351 yards and two touchdowns after four Saints ran for scores in the first half.

Brees stayed in the game with a 35-point lead late in the fourth quarter to move closer to Dan Marino's single-season record for yards passing. He needs 402 at home against Carolina to break Marino's record of 5,084 set in 1984.
