After coming off of a 9-7 record that included a playoff appearance in the 2016 season, die-hard fans have been clamoring for high-praise and national recognition. The 2017 NFL schedule proved that America was ready to see the Lions in not one, but three primetime games.
Critics locally and nationally have doubted the Lions week in and week out. Each week, asking Detroit to overcome the task at hand. They seemed to do just that and silence the ‘haters’ with a 3-1 start before dropping the next two heading into the bye week.
After hitting the restart button, the Lions came out flat against the Steelers for Sunday Night Football in their home building, 20-15. Up next, Detroit, 3-4, head to Lambeau this Monday night to face the Green Back Packers without their star QB, Aaron Rodgers. He is out for the season with a broken collar bone.
You have to expect that even with a Rodgers-less Packers, Lambeau will be rocking in primetime. Kickoff starts at 8:30 ET.
