As soon as the game was over we saw beat writers talking about ugly wins and casting shade on this latest win in the Lions quest to lock in a first round playoff bye (we can dream about it, right)? The reality here is that the Browns played their best game in 2 plus years and the Lions avoided a significant trap game that would have caught them in any of the previous 25 years (or more.
Nevin Lawson had a slow start – as did the rest of the team – but he redeemed himself along the way with an amazing forced fumble, recovery, and return for a touchdown. That was really the story of the game. The Lions were a team that started flat and eventually made up for the early weaknesses they showed with a final score that put them 14 points ahead of the winless Browns.
As usual, we took a number of your calls and had some fun and hilarious conversation about today’s game. Of course, our callers bring excellent insights about the team, but this week they dive in on Lions fans and help us to begin the conversation about whether Lions fans know how to win – even though the team has shown that it does.
