It is tempting to put this Lions’ loss on the shelf next to all the other Lions’ road losses over the last 10 years and leave it at that. They lost to Brett Favre on the road, and they lost to the Vikings on the road, and those are their two favorite pastimes. But this was different. This game was winnable. At the very least, it should have been closer than 24-10.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
