The Lions are on top. Last Sunday on Christmas Eve, the Detroit Lions won a nail biter against their division rivals, the Minnesota Vikings 30-24.
With this win, the Lions claimed the title of NFC North Division Champions. It is the Detroit Lions first division crown since 1993. It’s also their first NFC North title, which was formerly known as the NFC Central up until 2001.
The win also secured the Lions a spot in the NFL playoffs, which is their first playoff appearance since 2016.
After this historic win the Lions’ head coach, Dan Campbell, was interviewed by ABC News and said, “I’m proud of all the Lions fans out there who’ve been dying for this for years. That was for you, too.”
Detroit hired former NFL tight end and Detroit Lion, Dan Campbell, as their new head coach back in 2021. Campbell indicated through past interviews that his goal for the franchise was for the team to take on the identity of the City of Detroit.
Campbell’s love for the game and his players have been a huge part of their success this year. He has changed this once historic losing franchise to a team that has one of the best records in the NFL today.
This new culture the Detroit Lions now have is something very special. All fans are looking forward to what lies ahead for this team.
The Lions hope to take their momentum and high spirits into their next game against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Saturday at 8:15p.m. These two teams are both competing for a top three seed spot in the NFL playoffs. This is a big game for Detroit and will show the NFL who is worthy of that spot.
