Another Lions Victory

They were relieved not to go 0-17 for the 1st time in NFL history, after having become the 1st NFL team ever to go 0-16 (later achieved by Cleveland). 

 

Their jubilant reaction was similar to the 2007 Dolphins when a couple of former Chargers (QB Cleo Lemon & WR Greg Camarillo) hooked up for a 64 yard touchdown in overtime to beat the Ravens for their only victory on the season.

 

Baltimore also very nearly ruined the Patriots' undefeated season that year, stopping New England on 4th down while leading by 4, but Billick had called a timeout just before the play, gifting the Pats a 2nd chance which they took advantage of. They lost to the Colts the following week, before giving Miami their sole win on the year. They were basically an ill-advised timeout away from becoming the only team to beat the Patriots (in the regular season, that is) and to lose to the Dolphins in 2007.

I think it meant a lot to the Lions that their first victory was against a division rival. They made it more difficult for the Vikings' playoff chances, so that also helped. Any team likes a chance to knock a rival out of contention. 

 

Probably,  but the Lions and their fans are thrilled for any victoy....even one over a Division 2 college team.

Hey, let's give the Lions their due. They were relieved to not be the first team to go 0-16-1.
