Lions Kiss the Demon Goodbye

Good for them. The Lions end the NFL’s longest futility streak of winless road games. Its been three years plus since they won away from home – until Sunday. And while I know some fans say why are they bothering to win now – and dropping slots in next year’s NFL draft – but it’s not their job to stink, it’s their job to win. And has anyone noticed they’ve now beaten two straight winning record teams – something playoff bound teams are having a hard time doing? No complaints or cynicism here. Good for them. About time this streak is over.
