Detroit Lions Playoff History

The last of the four Wild Card games will take place in Arlington, where the Dallas #Cowboys and Detroit Lions will battle it out to get to the NFL’s version of the Elite Eight. These two teams have muddied playoff histories of late, but one has to advance. Dallas is laying a touchdown, which makes it the biggest favorite of Wild Card weekend, while the ‘total’ of 48 is certainly going to be one of the higher numbers to beat over the course of the weekend as well. #NFL

Taylor Decker and A'Shawn Robinson weren't alive when the Lions last won a playoff game, but they enjoyed the presentation nonetheless.

Tiger Stadium: Detroit, Michigan. Went to one of the last games at old Tiger Stadium (1999) with Mark Murphy & Jeff Justice. As always with Jeff & Murph, we had a blast.

Ndamukong Suh is coming to Miami, where he and his new team will both try to end their playoff droughts. The 305-pound heavyweight in this year's free agent class signed a $114 million, six-year deal with the Dolphins on Wednesday. The contract made Suh the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history, surpassing J.J. Watt's $100 million, six-year deal with Houston. The Detroit Lions went 0-2 in the postseason in Suh's five years with them, and Miami hasn't been to the playoffs since 2008.
