So, the franchise record for wins is 12, achieved in 1991. That year, as every single Lions TV broadcast team will tell you, was the last year the Lions won a playoff game.
So, I had a peek at the schedule to see when the soonest the Lions could win their 13th game: December 24 vs. the Vikings. Unfortunately, that will be in their house.
But what a glorius gift that would be. Now, if it takes a bit longer there’s the following week, Dec. 30 at Dallas. In their house.
Or, Jan. 7 at Ford Field vs. the Vikes once again. Hey, that would be a helluva party.
In any case, I do think they can get to 13 this season. Possibly just five weeks from now.
