Capture The Moment: Lions Win!
In the first time in too long, the Lions have won a football game. It seems like forever since we beat Kansas City in a December match up in 2007. To sum today up in one word, incredible. I have never felt this way after a win. We are closing the door on one era and beginning a new one. We have tied for the second longest losing streak in NFL history. We will not break that record. We can focus week to week and never hear about this again. Now we have to commit to being the best team every week and grow and turn our culture into a winning one. Matt Stafford played very well. He made some rookie throws but made more veteran ones. He had a long scramble and avoided the rush and threw a beautiful touchdown to Bryant Johnson. Kevin Smith rushed for over 100 yards before leaving the game with a shoulder injury. The defense played well enough to win. I can not explain how happy/relieved/thrilled/excited I am right now. This makes all those close losses worth it. This is what makes football great.
