The Detroit Lions ended the 2023 regular season with a 30-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 18. Their 12 wins tie the team record for wins in a season, matching 1991. That was also the last season the Lions won a playoff game.

The Lions will host a playoff game for the first time since the last time they won a division title, the 1993 season. It will also be the Lions' first playoff game ever at Ford Field.

What seed are the Detroit Lions in playoffs?
