In a post-game press conference, Lions running back Jamaal Williams was asked if he thought the Lions could make a playoff game, with seven games left to play in the regular season. “Hell yeah,” he said via the Detroit Free Press. “We doing it now.”
It’s the first time the Lions have won three in a row since 2017. Prior to Sunday’s game, they beat the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. Now, people are believing this team could go somewhere.
“It’s crazy man,” cornerback Jerry Jacobs said via the Free Press. “You can really see it. Everyone believes it, even the coaches to the owner. Everyone’s just believing and once you get that feeling of believing, everything just starts connecting. And I feel like that’s what we’re doing right now.” View photos from Sunday’s game against the Giants below.
