...and it was awesome. We watched the end of the GB-BUF game in a Ford Field restaurant before Lions kickoff; the whole stadium erupted when the Packers lost. The Lions first-half play was awful but what a nailbiter. Not over til the last play. The game turned on a BLOCKED FG. Sweet. First place baby!

Even the weather was surprisingly conducive to traipsing around downtown Detroit. If they hadn't crammed us fans into seats the size of paint cans, it would have been a perfect day. I think that seat gave me scoliosis, and my knee creaks now when I straighten it. But what's a little degenerative spinal disease compared to WINNING THE NFC NORTH knockonwood??

Good day to be a Lions fan. Holy crap, did I just say that?

We still have to win in Green Bay to win the division, so don't get too excited yet. We haven't won in Green Bay since 1991!

Plus, a win at GB could mean the Lions can get the 2nd seed, have a bye week, and not play Seattle for their first game. But yeah, @GB. shake

I almost heaped praise upon the scrappy Bills. But then I remembered Week 5. zombiegulpsoblue Gonna take a bit more time for that one to scar over.

Um, given Suh's reputation, probably not.

Maybe he should stop trying to intentionally injure other players? Crazy idea, I know, but...

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

According to my understanding, the league still enforces its rules during the playoffs.

Let's just say some Lions fans won't miss he when he signs elsewhere.
