The Detroit Lions started the season off with plenty of promise, starting out the season 2-1-1. That one loss being a 34-30 nail biter against the Kansas City Chiefs, in which Matthew Stafford would put together a touchdown drive to push Detroit ahead with two minutes to left. Chiefs running back Darrell Williams would take back the lead for the last time, with 23 seconds left to spare.
Indeed it is. With one game left, Lions fans must feel like they are going through hell. Or, at least, compared to expectations at the start of the year. A 27-17 loss to the Denver Broncos has brought the Lions record to 3-11-1… which could also be a recipe to an alcoholic drink. Lions fans have probably consumed a lot of those this season. Plus, while playing Denver, Orange Crush could be a drink of choice.
Lions fans were served elimination from the playoffs at the Thanksgiving Dinner table last week. Unfortunately, this week, they were served seconds. A 20-7 loss in the first game all season in which they did not have a lead brings the already-eliminated team to 3-9-1. As for Minnesota, they got a much-needed victory for their playoff hopes and improve to 9-4 on the year.

Losing 19-16 to a one-win Washington Redskin team can make any team feel red in the face, and Lions fans have sadly seen this time and time again. Nastia Liukin posted the perfect mood in which Lions fans should be feeling, too.
Ah yes, if you read the title, it tells you a lot about this game. The famed Wiz Khalifa song, “We Dem Boyz“, has been a rallying tune amongst fans since the song came out in 2014. No, not the fight song, simply a rallying tune. Of course, like any Cowboys-related content, it’s been memed. Whether or not it’s funny is up to the reader.
If you told me about three weeks prior to the start of the 2019-2020 NFL season that I’d be writing an article on the Colts’ future at quarterback, I’d have laughed at you. We all know what happened: Andrew Luck, beaten and exhausted beyond repair, retired at age 30, breaking Colts fans’ hearts worldwide. The Colts have a relatively well-rounded roster, one that was expected to contend for a Super Bowl with Luck at the helm, but alas. Insert Jacoby Brissett, who has performed admirably this season. However, an important question remains – is he the answer? Let’s look at some options. Continue reading →
At last, the 1972 Dolphins can breathe easy. No undefeated teams remain. The MVP race is as hot as ever, and in week ten, we once again saw some spectacular showings and some major letdowns. Let’s jump right in with our week ten awards! Continue reading →
