local television blackouts. If you want to be sure to see a game

Although the Lions have never secured a spot in a Super Bowl and
had the chance to win the Lombardi Trophy, they won 4 NFL
Championships before the NFL/AFL merger. Their team stats also
consist of 4 Conference Championships, and 4 Division Championships.
They have also had some remarkable players on their roster over the
years. Barry Sanders, Jack Christianson, Dick (Night Train) Lane,
Yale Lary, and Lem Barney all have player stats outstanding enough to
be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The curse of Bobby Layne may or may not be a rumor. After the
Lions traded quarterback Bobby Layne in a controversial trade in 1958
the news reported Layne had said the Lions would not win for 50
years. Needless to say it has been a rough 50 years with time spent
at the bottom of the standings. The last year of the curse would
have been 2008. That season the Lions set a record for going 0-16.
They are the only team in the league to go an entire season without
winning one game. There is change in the air now!
