In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Ash Thompson to discuss the Lions home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. In another game in which the Lions were projected to lose, the Lions took the Chiefs to the last play of the game. The national conversation about the Lions will certainly change for the better after this showing. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to take away a win. The good news is that this was still a statement game in which the Lions showed they could play on the same level as a Super Bowl contender. We’re here to help you understand the perspective.
Detroit Lions Podcast Calls Out A Culture Change
This team has never had a loss that gave the fan base so much hope. The team played for a full 60 minutes and showed that they can not only hang with the best the NFL has to offer, but could even beat them. In the Fox pregame show, Michael Strahan predicted the Chiefs by 14 points. After this game, his tune about the Lions is going to have to change. The entire conversation about the Lions will change at the national level. This team has shown that it can play big boy football, and they put the NFC North on notice today.
We take your calls and discuss the role of the officials in today’s game. There is a ton of opportunity for controversy here, but we believe that good teams overcome the officials’ impact today. Chris has never seen a fan base happier after a loss than those he spoke with today. The optimism is well founded. Big show, lots to talk about, and a fine way to head into the bye.
