It feels weird saying this, but it is a good year to be a Detroit Lions fan.
The Detroit Lions are the trendy playoff pick right now after they started the season 1-6 and now currently sit at 7-7 after their impressive win over the New York Jets on Sunday.
Before that game took place, a wife and husband engaged in some football out in the parking lot during the tailgate before the contest at MetLife Stadium.
Once the ball was hiked, the husband, who clearly played football before, gave his wife a strong left hand as he donned a Penei Sewell jersey. His wife felt every bit of that hand as she got pushed off to the side and seemingly gave up.
Jared Goff completed 23 of 38 passes for 252 yards with one touchdown during Sunday’s 20-17 wfin over the Jets.
That victory over the Jets means the Lions have won six of their past seven games. After starting 1-6, they are now 7-7 and solidly in the playoff hunt. They face the Carolina Panthers in Week 16.
The Detroit Lions last made the playoffs in 2016, when they lost the Wild Card Round. Detroit’s last playoff win came in the 1992 playoffs.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
