Detroit Lions home games are played at Ford Field located in downtown Detroit, Mich. The Lions won four NFL championships in its franchise history, but the team has not had a championship season since 1957. The Detroit Lions are also the only team in NFL history to not earn a Super Bowl appearance since the Super Bowl was created. Despite failing to make it to the NFL's top game, the Lions have produced several Hall of Fame inductees. In addition to these nationally recognized great players, the franchise owners created the "Pride of the Lions," which is the team’s internal list of its most notable players. Over the course of its existence, the Detroit Lions has had several rivalries. Rivals include the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears. Rivalries that fizzled out over the years include match-ups with the Cleveland Browns and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Lions’ and the Browns’ rivalry ended when the Browns moved to a different conference. Without regular match-ups, interest in the rivalry waivered. Grab your Lions tickets at StubHub.
