ESPN Broadcaster Trolls Detroit Lions


As if being a supporter of the Detroit Lions is not challenging enough.

With their latest 19-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Lions became the first team in NFL history to lose on a successful field goal of over 50 yards twice in the same season.

Have the Lions now also become an adjective to describe heartbreaking losses?

At the conclusion of a tough Indianapolis Colts loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Steve Levy of ESPN levied a description of the loss that should sting all of Detroit.

"The Colts, kind of a Lions kinda loss," Levy said, as the Ravens came from behind to defeat the Colts, 31-25, in overtime.

At one point, the Ravens were trailing, 25-9, with 12:04 remaining in the game.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson continued his stellar play, as he tossed a touchdown pass to tight end Mark Andrews to cut into the Colts' lead.

The three-day convention is taking place in Novi, Michigan this weekend after a brief hiatus in 2020.

Mel Tucker is drawing a significant amount of attention since Michigan State has started the 2021 season with a 7-0 record.

Will Lions Adjust Practice Strategy Due to Mounting Injuries?

The Detroit Lions have placed 14 players on the injured reserve list.

On the next Colts possession, Calais Campbell came up with a block of Rodrigo Blankenship’s kick, giving Baltimore another opportunity for the comeback.

Jackson went 37-for-43 with 442 yards and four touchdowns.

Andrews finished his stellar evening with 11 receptions for 147 yards and two touchdowns.
