You needed a win but you got a lump of coal instead. Now you got the Bolts and Chiefs in your grill.

Ironic, but thank you Lions for that epic comeback.

Nice victory on the road.

Dropped passes could've lost the game, but somehow the Lions pulled it off.

I wish we had a running back like Bush.

They are waiting for Barry Sanders' son to graduate from college :P

A Lions' victory Sunday clinches a playoff spot.

It's been a long time.

You have to give them credit, a major turn around from a few years back. They are going to be in it to win it for the near future, I'm sure.

I fully agree. Like I said earlier, a vocal leader would really help to maximize the Lions potential.

Yeah, I think everyone lately (or always) is going way overboard with the superbowl thing. It seems like every time a team wins a game, they have to talk about a superbowl, or if a quarterback is playing well, they will just start talking if he is "superbowl caliber" or not.

We should be happy here in Detroit, there's a real turnaround, we're in the playoffs with a strong team, and not in the playoffs with a team lead by a single running back. I don't think we're good enough this year for a superbowl, but who cares? It'll be coming very soon.

Biggest game of the past decade? I think so.

Nationally televised too. Well, it's airing in Phoenix. Good enough for me. I think it will be a tough game and Rivers will exploit the secondary but I have faith. The Lions can clinch a playoff birth with a victory and bring some pride back to Motown and Michigan.

Go Lions!

Lions look impressive, Matt Stafford is quite the QB for his age, have to give the Lions credit for what they have accomplished.
