Bringing home victories
Based in Detroit, Michigan, the Detroit Lions have been making waves in American professional football since they first hit the field in 1930. The Lions’ history dates back to 1928 being a team from Portsmouth called the Spartans. The Spartans then moved to Detroit in 1934 after a change of franchise ownership. The team eventually changed their name to the Lions, which denotes their status as "monarchs of the league". By 1935, the Lions competed in their first playoffs against the New York Giants resulting in a 26 – 7 win for the Lions. In 1952, almost two decades after their first win, the Lions once again sat foot at the playoffs. The Lions faced the Cleveland Browns at the Cleveland Municipal Stadium with the Lions taking home the NFL title with a 17 – 7 score. The same feat was repeated the next year when the Lions once again defeated the Browns for the NFL title, this time with a tighter margin of 17 – 16. From 1935 to 2016, the Lions have appeared in the playoffs 17 times, winning eight division championships, four conference championships, and a total of four league championships.
Head to head with rivals
Many of the Lions’ players have been inducted into the football Hall of Fame and include Lem Barney, Dutch Clark, Bill Dudley, and Yale Lary. Like many teams in the NFL, the lions have rivals that make matches more exciting. Among the most intense rivals of the Lions include the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. Both the Bears and Packers have had rivalries with the Lions since 1930. Games among these rivals are highly anticipated and usually result in sold out tickets. Aside from the two oldest rivals, the Minessota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Cleveland Browns Playoff are also known to rival the Lions. Catch the Lions play at their home turf at the Ford Field. Or if you want to follow them to another location, you can check out their schedule here on StubHub.
