There have been plenty of controversial pass interference calls over the years. But few have sparked the same uproar as the one that cost Brandon Pettigrew and the Lions a crucial first down in the fourth quarter of a wild card playoff game in Dallas. It was a tremendously difficult matchup against the Cowboys, but the Lions could’ve had it. It was still a great season for the Lions, however, who unleashed a ferocious defense in 2014 instead of their typical high-flying offense they wound up winning 11 games and the top NFC wild card. They held the Packers to 7 points and kept them opponent under 20 points in 11 out of 16 regular season games. The season saw the breakout of Golden Tate (99 catches, 1,331 yards) while Calvin Johnson missed a few games. The defense, led by DeAndre Levy, Glover Quin, Ndamakong Suh, and Ezekiel Ansah smothered the opposition. But losing Suh and George Johnson are big holes to fill. The Detroit Lions operate under head coach Jim Caldwell at Ford Field in downtown Detroit. In 2014, the Lions won their most regular season games since 1991 with 11 on their way to a wild card playoff berth. But they fell short of their first playoff win since 1991 and have now lost seven playoff games in a row. They’re the only NFC team that has never played in the Super Bowl. Two playoff appearances and a near-miss in four years have marked the 2010s as successful overall for the Lions, but fans are hungry for that playoff win. They’ll have Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah available for immediate playing time, which should balance the pass-heavy offense. For now, however, fans can only celebrate their four NFL championships, three of which came in the 50s, and four division titles, although they have yet to win the NFC North. This year the Lions host Denver in primetime, Arizona, Chicago, Minnesota, Oakland, Philly, Green Bay on Thanksgiving, and San Francisco. Get your Detroit Lions tickets from Gold Coast Tickets!
