The Lions in the Playoffs
The Detroit Lions are looking strong this season and are gunning for the NFC North division
title. The Lions are looking to ride their electric offense to the postseason, and they definitely have enough firepower to
make it happen. Quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson are one of the most dynamic duos in the entire
National Football League, evidenced by Johnson breaking the record for the most receiving yards in a single season in 2012.
Johnson is having another monster campaign in 2013, and the addition of running back Reggie Bush has made this Detroit offense
more balanced than in previous years. Bush is one of the most exciting and shifty running back in the entire league, and his
presence in the receiving game has been a major asset as well. The Lions have high hopes this postseason, and they could be
a team that makes a real sun at a Super Bowl appearance. If their defense can hold up, it could be exactly what this team
need to make some serious noise in the playoffs.
When it comes to the postseason, every player has to raise his level
of play, because the stakes are that much higher. The playoffs are the cream of the crop when it comes to NFL games, and fans
know that very well. It's always exciting to be in the stands at an NFL game, but the postseason makes it even more fun.
The Detroit Lions have a very good team this season, and could be a force if they're able to make the
playoffs. This Lions team always has talent, but the level of talent on this offensive unit could be unparalleled in the National
Football League right now. It always starts at the quarterback position in the NFL, and the Lions have a good, young signal
caller in Matthew Stafford. Stafford has one of the best weapons in the league at his disposal in wide receiver Calvin Johnson,
who is considered by many to be the best wide receiver in the NFL. Multiple times per game Johnson remind the fans in attendance
why he is so highly regarded around NFL circles with highlight plays that leave people's jaws on the floor.
of running back Reggie Bush in the offseason has proved to be a big move. The Lions struggled to get their ground game going
in 2012, but that has not been the case in 2013, and Bush has been a big reason for that. Bush is an electric and one of the
better receiving backs in the NFL, making him a dual threat that defenses always have to keep an eye on. Defensively, the
Lions aren't great, but they don't have to be with such a prolific offense. All this defense has to do is bend and not break,
and the Lions could do some major damage in the playoffs.
The playoffs are a magical time
in the National Football League, and that's a big reason that so many fans of the NFL are clamoring to get their hands on
tickets to the biggest postseason matchups. The postseason provides 12 teams will the chance to go to the Super Bowl to represent
their respective conferences in one of the biggest sporting events in the world. There's nothing quite like the atmosphere
at a playoff game, as the intensity of the game and the excitement amongst the crowd are taken to new heights. It's the experience
of a lifetime to be there in person for an NFL playoff game when everything is on the line for your favorite team.
When was the first time the Detroit Lions made it to the postseason?
The answer is 1935.
The Detroit Lions were founded as the Portsmouth Spartans in 1929 and were renamed the Detroit Lions
five years later. The team won several National Football League championships before the NFL merger with the American Football
League in 1970. Since then, the Lions have been unable to secure a conference title, but they're looking to do so as soon
as possible. The Lions have been to the playoffs on 15 occasions, most recently in 2011. The team has seen some truly memorable
moments in the postseason, but the Lions have been unable to reach a Super Bowl. They've won their division three times, and
they're hoping to make it a fourth in 2013. If this team reaches the playoffs, they'll be looking to go on a tear similar
to that of the Baltimore Ravens in 2012.
Fans of the National Football League are some of the
most passionate you'll find in sports, and this is especially true when it comes to the postseason. The playoffs are the most
exhilarating time of the year in the NFL, and fans are always looking to gain access to the stadium for the biggest games.
