After winning three League Championships before the Super Bowl era, the Detroit Lions have a history of not getting to the Big Dance. Poor front office management may have led to an era of mediocrity that was capped-off by the worst season ever in 2009. However the winds of change are blowing hard in Ford Field. Reaching the NFL Playoffs in 2011, the Detroit Lions looked to be on the rise. Poor coaching by Jim Schwartz led to regression in 2012 and 2013, though the Detroit Lions still put up a fight against even the best opponents. Bringing in new head coach Jim Caldwell, the 2014 Detroit Lions became one of the best teams in the AFC. Securing a wildcard spot, the Detroit Lions will start 2015 in the NFL Playoffs.
Much like his team, QB Matthew Stafford is a limitless talent that needs experience and coaching to grow into an elite force in the NFL. However, even his potential may be dwarfed by WR Calvin Johnson, earning the name “Megatron” for his superhuman-like ability. Fifth-year TE Brandon Pettigrew and veteran RB Reggie Bush are two more stars with limitless ceilings. The best player in the 2010 NFL Draft, DT Ndamukong Suh, will anchor the defense for a decade with help from young DT Nick Fairley. DE Ezekiel Ansah is another weapon on the defensive line, while S Glover Quinn leads a deep secondary.
Replacing the hardnosed Jim Schwartz with the soft-spoken Jim Caldwell, the Detroit Lions hope to rebuild their team chemistry, while also developing their raw talent. The NFC North was one of the tougher divisions in football, and the Detroit Lions will faced the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, and Green Bay Packers twice. The Detroit Lions ended with a record of 11-5, falling just short of the NFC North Title, which went to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Nabbing a spot in the wildcard round, the Detroit Lions will have to start the 2015 NFL Playoffs by traveling to Arlington to face the Dallas Cowboys.
Detroit, Michigan’s Ford Field serves as the home turf of the Detroit Lions. The domed stadium is often bathed in natural light from the numerous skylights, while the FieldTurf surface of the field allows for more speed and more touchdowns.
