This isn’t supposed to be happening, which makes the potential of the Detroit Lions’ season all the more captivating.

The team that’s never been to a Super Bowl, that could never win on the road, that drafted horribly and has long been painfully short of talent and guts, now heads to the spacious home of America’s Team on Sunday at 3-0 after rallying from a 20-0 deficit to claim a 26-23 overtime triumph over Minnesota.

Normally hopeless NFL fans in Michigan and western New York can now reasonably ask a question that hasn’t come up in years—let alone in September: When do playoff tickets go on sale?

After years of comic futility under the ham-fisted hand of Matt Millen, the new-look Detroit Lions are the belles of the NFL ball. They’re one of four undefeated teams left in the NFL, and their point differential of +55 is the league’s highest.
