Chuck the Freak Talks Incredible Detroit Lions Season & NFL Trends
As a lifelong Detroit Lions fan, I really thought I had seen everything. We’ve seen games we were winning by tons of points go down in landmark losses, and we’ve seen awesome comebacks from our teams. But, the Lions pulled off a riveting comeback win on Sunday (Nov. 18), and nobody saw it coming. It’s all part of an incredible Detroit Lions 2023 season.
The team played a wild, riveting final 3 minutes of NFL football against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. In the end, the Lions battled it out to land the division win, 31-26. Now, the Lions are 8-2 for the first time since the 1960s.
With just over four minutes left on the clock, many, if not all, Detroit Lions fans had given up. The Bears kicked a field goal to bring their lead up to 26–14 over Detroit. But, never count Detroit out. We’re always the underdogs, in more ways that one. And, we also, somehow, pull off the impossible. The Lions came back to win it all, 31-26, and the Bears were left dumbfounded.
