Networks & Services Streaming Lions Games in 2017

Stepping onto the playing field as without a doubt one of the oldest teams in football history, the Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based out of Detroit, Michigan.  The Lions compete in the NFL as a member club of the league’s NFC North division along with the Packers, Vikings, and Bears.  The team plays its home games at Ford Field in Downtown Detroit too.  The Detroit Lions have won four NFL championships, and they tied for 9th overall in total championships amongst all 32 NFL franchises.  This is pretty old news though, because their last was in 1957, which gives the club the second-longest NFL championship drought behind the Arizona Cardinals.  In fact, they are one of only four current teams and the only NFC team to have not yet played in the Super Bowl at all, ever.  They played great last year though, so hopes are high for the next season.
