Ravens 44 – Lions 20

 

The Lions were facing an opponent this week that on paper, appeared pretty evenly matched.  Both teams are having mediocre seasons so far.  Each team has playoff aspirations.  Each team has had impressive wins but also had some not so impressive losses.  They also had the same record going into this game.  In order for the Lions to keep their playoff hopes alive, winning this game was paramount.

Vikings 30 – Lions 23

 

Yesterday was a day to give thanks.  While I was (and still am) very thankful for plenty of things, the way the Detroit Lions played yesterday, wasn’t one of them.  The Lions played their division rival Minnesota Vikings.  The last few Thanksgivings the Lions had some pretty impressive victories, including last year against the Vikings as well.

Detroit Lions Week 9 Pride Report

Lions 30 – Packers 10

Week 9 found the Lions in Green Bay.  In the past 25 years or so, the Lions really haven’t fared well there.  Quarterbacks Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers have pretty much had the Lions number.  Well, this time it was a little different.

Rodgers went out week 6 with a collarbone injury and has the potential to be out the rest of the year.  That means the Lions had a chance.  They would have to handle their business though.  Handle it they did.  The Lions came into Lambeau, took the lead 7-0 in the first and never looked back.  And you know what else?  The Lions never had to punt.  When was the last time that happened? It was 1971, in case you were curious.

Steelers 20 –  Lions 15

 

 

 

The sad thing is, this tweet pretty much sums up this game for the Lions.  After coming off the bye week and the Lions getting healthy, it was thought that the Lions could give this Pittsburgh Steeler team a run for its money, and actually win.  This team had been trending up, despite losing a close one to the Panthers, and trying to complete the comeback against the Saints.   Welllll….not so much.

The Lions went 0-5 in the red zone last night, and as the tweet said, zero touchdowns.  Lets be honest.  You are literally going nowhere in this league if you’re not scoring touchdowns.  Not sure if the Lions got that memo or not.  After getting down to the 1 yard line early in the 3rd quarter with Pittsburgh ahead 13-12, the Lions went for it on 4th down, and came away without points.

Touchdown!! NFL TD Celebrations Are Back

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

While a lot of the NFL season has been draped in controversy, there is something that we’re missing.

The celebrations!  The NFL has graciously allowed celebrations back in the game.  As long as they’re not too outlandish.   (Right OBJ??) They have been a pretty welcome sight for fans and players alike!

Shoutout to The Checkdown where most of these came from!

Lions 38 – 52 Saints

The Lions were in New Orleans today to take on the Saints.   In the recent past, the Superdome hasn’t been a bad place to play for the Lions.  The last 2 times they played there, they’ve won.  They’ve one the last 3 games against the Saints.  Coming off of a loss at home to the Carolina Panthers, the Lions came into the Superdome to try and right the ship.  Well, that didn’t go to well.  Tons of injuries, turnovers, and just “Shanahan-igans” all around.  It was a regression from earlier in the season.   Not exactly what the team was going for this week.

Coming off of a loss at home to the Carolina Panthers, the Lions get to travel to New Orleans to take on the New Orleans Saints.  I decided to chat with an old friend,  Greg Barber.  Greg is a huge Saints fan. We’ve had him on our podcasts and webcasts before, and it’s always fun getting to talk to Greg!  Then at the end, he switched it up and asked me some questions!

Representing A Pride of Lions

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

 

My dad used to always ask me if the Atlanta Braves had won when I was a teenager.  Finally, I figured out who they were, and followed them.  As I got older, I started paying attention more to sports.  First baseball, then onto football.

Being born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Michigan Football was a way of life. Ohio State is the enemy, and that’s just how it was. My love for college football grew, and eventually expanded to the NFL. I enjoyed watching the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl in ’98 and ’99. When I came back from college, I moved to downtown Detroit. Right across from what would eventually be the Detroit Lions new home. I loved football, so I was all about the Detroit Lions.

Week 5 Detroit Lions Pride Report

Carolina Panthers 27 – Detroit Lions 24

The Detroit Lions had come off of a great victory over their division rival, Minnesota Vikings and were feeling pretty good about themselves.  But so were the Panthers, who defeated the defending Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in Week 4.

In a week full of distraction for the Panthers, the Lions were thinking they had them right where they wanted them.  In Ford Field, with a healthy rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis back from a concussion. He was missed these last two games.

The Panthers, one of the least penalized teams in the NFL, had 11 penalties for 100 yards, and most of them happened in the first quarter.  The Lions were able to capitalize and went ahead 10-3.     But Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton remembered he was Cam Newton and the Panthers then scored 17 unanswered points.  However, the Lions weren’t all the way done.
