5 games left for Lions to get 1st division title in 20 years

It's so close, yet so far. They bumbled their way through the last few games. Could have easily taken a huge lead in the division by beating even one of the Steelers, or the Tampa Bay Bucs the last two weeks. Instead they demolished Green Bay for their first Thanksgiving win in 9 years. That sealed them with all the tiebreakers in the division. Sadly, they still only sit at 7-5. A record that Chicago isn't too far from, and even Green Bay isn't completely out of it.

This is the Lions we all know. We can't be optimistic because we all know that 7-9 and 11-5 are both possible with this team. They have the talent to run the table. To beat any team this year actually,b ut they are just so damned stupid. Huge win today, but I'm not going to get too excited just yet. They have a way of making us not have nice things. Basically always. Don't even need my storage for skis this year to head to Lambeau and hope that we can not get laughed at in December this year. We already are done with Green Bay.

Lions Put a BEATING on the Packers on Turkey Day

Finally! A year where we don't have to listen to every media outlet asking the NFL to take our T-Day game away! The Lions, and Matthew Stafford actually got their first win against Green Bay as well today since he was behind center (We did have a 7-3 win a couple years back with Stafford injured, however. STanton I believe.). They had their Apricot Power for apricot seeds.

It was a straight beatdown. With about 600 yards total offense, the Lions only problems were with themselves. Sounds familiar of course. Turnovers came at the same rate, penalties, and just plain stupidity. Of course the defense played its best game of the year holding the PAckers to under 70 (!) yards until late in the 4th quarter when they got enough to get over 100 yards finally, only to fumble a snap inside the Lions' 20 to finish them off down 40-10.

So...we're in 1st place with all the tiebreakers for the division going 4-1 so far with just another game with Minnesota left. The division obviously would ahve been all but wrapped up had we not blown 2 straight games by our pure stupidity @PIT and at home vs. a terrible Tamp a Bay team.
