DETROIT (AP) – NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell couldn’t help but notice a great deal of optimism and confidence that the Detroit Lions are moving in the right direction when he visited their training camp.

“You can see it and feel it,” Goodell said.

It will be time for Detroit to show it on Sept. 9 at home against the St. Louis Rams when it kicks off a season of rare high hopes.

“We’ve got some film on St. Louis and we’re breaking it down,” Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch said. “There’s a new head coach and a new scheme, so we have to be ready to jump on them.”

Detroit, meanwhile, has the same head coach, coordinators and general manager for a fourth straight season. That, alone, is stunning.
