Detroit Lions Tickets

The Detroit Lions are an old team in football that has seen limited success. The Lions have only been able to see four NFL championships, and none of those in the Super Bowl Era. The Lions did have a great run back in the 50's with the winning championships in 1952, 1953 and 1957.

Detroit Lions tickets are for sale to enjoy the franchise's first playoff game since 1999 when they meet the New Orleans Saints on January 7, 2012 at the Superdome for the second game of the Wild Card playoff round. Yes, Matthew Stafford has blossomed into the quarterback so many thought he could be and the defense has shown glimpses of being worthy of a date in the beginning of February for Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium. There will be no playoff games at Ford Field, but that is alright considering the dismal history of the franchise since Barry Sanders retired.

Instead a platoon of Jahvid Best, Kevin Smith, and Maurice Morris are not much of a running threat. Quarterback Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew, and Nate Burleson accounted for the bulk of the offense. Stafford announced his arrival as a true Pro Bowl caliber quarterback, surpassing 5,000 yards and 40 touchdowns. Johnson, a.k.a. Megatron started the season hot and ended it with 1,681 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 32 plays of 20 yards or more. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew caught 83 passes for 777 yards and 5 touchdowns, adding him to the list of tight ends to become major fixtures in an NFL offense. Burleson caught 73 passes for 757 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The defense may not offer much in terms of stats and rankings. They have the 22nd best passing defense and 23rd best rushing defense. The Detroit Lions only consolation has been their knack for creating turnovers, collecting 34 of them. The Lions need the front four of Cliff Avril, Namukong Suh, Corey Williams, and Kyle Vanden Bosch to perform more than admirably, perhaps a little dirty to ensure a return to the postseason that lasts longer than a single game.

Detroit lost its last game of the season to the Packers backup quarterback in a shootout, but won the previous three football games. The Lions did not play any contenders in that time. Before that streak, they dropped two straight to two contenders. The Saints, the team on the docket, was one of those teams. The Lions lost 31-1.

Detroit Lions History

The Detroit Lions began playing 1929 as the Portsmouth Spartans. The franchise has known some success, winning four NFL championships before the advent of the Super Bowl, has won four conference championships, has won four division championships, and has appeared in the NFL playoffs 14 times.

Without question, the best decade to enjoy Detroit Lions tickets was the 1950s. The Lions won conference championships in 1952, 1953, 1954 and 1957 and won three NFL championships (1952, 1953 and 1957). Quarterback Bobby Lane led the Lions to each of these championships. Sadly, he was traded in 1958, cursing the Detroit Lions for 50 years. The curse has aged well passed five decades and the fans are hoping to end the curse with Matthew Stafford at quarterback at Ford Field. Running back Barry Sanders could not provide a win in the playoffs and he is in the Hall of Fame. Perhaps it will take a quarterback to break a quarterback's curse.
