Detroit Lions: The Detroit Lions Journey Through the NFL

Sarah Craig

The Detroit Lions are an American football professional team based in Detroit, Michigan. They are a member of the National Football League (NFL) and compete in the North division alongside the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and Chicago Bears.

The Lions were founded in 1930 and have four NFL championships, the most recent being in 1957. Despite their long history, the team has struggled in recent years, with only one playoff victory and no Super Bowl appearances since 1957.

The Lions play their home games at Ford Field, which opened in 2002 and seats over 65,000 people. Honolulu blue, silver, and white are the team's colors, and their mascot is a lion named Roary.

In the hopes of turning the team around, the Lions hired a new head coach, Dan Campbell, and a new general manager, Brad Holmes, in 2021. The Lions have also made a number of significant roster moves, including trading quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for Jared Goff and a number of draft picks.

The Lions are rebuilding and looking to develop young talent while improving their overall team culture as of the 2021 season. While the road ahead may be difficult, fans remain optimistic that the Lions will eventually return to winning ways and bring another championship to Detroit.
