Lions RB Best doesn't mind flying under the radar

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best doesn't much care if he's mentioned when people talk about the NFC's highest-scoring offense.

Best says he just wants to win and stay healthy.

So far, so good, heading into Sunday's game at Minnesota.

Best has helped Detroit win its first two games and he has avoided injury after banged-up big toes stunted his rookie season and a concussion slowed him last month.

He has touched the ball 47 times through two games, the busiest stretch of his brief career, and has accounted for more than one-fourth of the Lions' offense.

Best complements Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Co. because he can burst through a hole on the ground and he can catch passes out of the backfield.
