This past season was arguably the best season Lions fans have been a part of since the Barry Sanders days. The emergence of Golden Tate, the rock-solid coaching of newly hired Jim Caldwell and staff, the No. 1 defense in the entire league and the almost-complete domination of the NFC North to cap off the 2014 season.

The Detroit Lions had a golden opportunity last Sunday in the NFC showdown against the Arizona Cardinals. The battle for first place in the conference was a possible playoff preview, but the Lions could not hold on in a 14-6 defeat.
The Lions defense, for 11 weeks in a row, has supported the offense and created countless opportunities for the team to win. Not only to win, but to win big. No opponent has taken advantage of this Lions defense, which is why it has continued to stay ranked in the top of the league. Read More…
The Atlanta Falcons were unable to hold onto their 21-0 early lead in London, England, allowing the Lions to score 24 unanswered points in the second half.
Detroit defied all odds early Sunday in Wembley Stadium facing a streaky Falcons team. Starting their third-string center, it was clear the Lions’ No. 1 defense would have Matt Ryan’s number all game, but the usual Lions pressure did not come around until the second half. Two sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception shook Matty Ice’s confidence and held the red-hot offense to zero points in the second half of the game. Read More…
The Detroit Lions rallied late in their Week 7 matchup to overcome Sean Payton’s prolific New Orleans Saints offense 24-23.
The Lions did not waste a second scoring 14 of their points in the last four minutes of the game. The stout Lions defense pitched another shutout against the run game, holding the crowded Saints backfield to only 60 yards. Averaging 133 yards per game on the ground, Drew Brees realized early that the game would have to be won through the air. Brees’ lights out performance of 342 yards and two touchdowns was not enough to beat the Detroit Lions. Read More…
The Minnesota Vikings dodged a shutout at home against their NFC North rival, the Detroit Lions in a 17-3 loss.
The Lions rose to 4-2 on the season and continued to prove their dominance on the defensive side of the ball.

Monday Night Football headliners are screaming just what Detroit Lions fans have been wanting to see all offseason.
The Lions defeated the New York Giants 35-14 on the first Monday Night Football matchup of the 2014 NFL regular season.
The Lions started off the new season in a strong fashion putting up 35 points on the Giants’ defense.
The Detroit Lions head into training camp with the 2014 rookie draft class signed under contract.
Eric Ebron, the playmaking tight end of the North Carolina Tarheels, capped the pen for all Lions rookies Friday when he signed an estimated $2.2 million, four-year deal.
Why would the Lions bring back Dan Orlovsky? I’ll ask that again, why!?
Dan Orlovsky, the 30-year-old journeyman quarterback of some of the most troubling teams of the past decade.
The Detroit Lions’ offseason agenda is so hazy, not even a fortune teller could predict it.
Mark your calendars because March will be a big month. March 8 is when the free agency flirting begins followed by the March 11 date of when signatures and dollar signs can be inked into contracts. The Detroit Lions can start camp two weeks earlier than the normal April 21 offseason workouts because of the recent signing of new head coach, Jim Caldwell. These dates are creeping up, and the decisions are about to be made.
Like every team during the offseason, the Detroit Lions should be scrambling to find free agents to sign. Last year’s offseason saw productive signings like running back Reggie Bush, which worked wonders for the team despite a poor finish overall.
So far, the Lions have already brought on a new head coach and a new offensive coordinator. They have also began work on fixing the holes in the team’s secondary by signing defensive back Isa Abdul-Quddus. When coupled with smart signings, new head coach Jim Caldwell’s prediction for a ring could come true.
The days following the Detroit Lions’ Week 17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings were tough times for both the team and the NFL. Most fans could probably guess see the dismissal of head coach Jim Schwartz coming after playoff hopes disappeared once they lost to Eli Manning’s New York Giants.
Though Schwartz “salvaged” a team that already included Calvin Johnson from Rob Marinelli’s pitiful 0-16 season, Schwartz had always had troubles closing out the a season. Read More…
The Detroit Lions’ head coaching search has finally come to an end.
After touching down on a San Diego tarmac just to find out that Ken Whisenhunt would choose the Titans over the Lions, Detroit acted swiftly in hiring its second choice, Jim Caldwell.
