Detroit Lions Football

The Detroit Lions were originally called the Portsmouth Spartans. The team began play in 1930 as one of the NFL's small town teams in Portsmouth, Ohio. However, they moved to Detroit in 1934 due to the Great Depression. The Detroit Lions won the NFL Championship in 1935. The team had many stars including "Dutch" Clark, Ernie Caddel, George Christiansen, "Ace" Gutowsky, Glenn Presnell and "Ox" Emerson.

The Lions saw their greatest success in the 1950s. Led by quarterback Bobby Layne, they won the league championship in 1952, 1953, and 1957. In 1957, Detroit had one of the greatest comeback victories in NFL post-season history. They trailed the San Francisco 49ers 27-7 in the third quarter. The team rallied and scored 24 unanswered points to win the game.

In 1989, Barry Sanders takes home the Offensive Rookie of the Year award. His first season, he missed the NFL rushing title by 10 yards...because he chose not to go back in to gain the yardage. According to Wayne Fontes, when he offered Sanders the chance to gain the yardage and the rushing title, Sanders declined, reportedly saying, "Coach, let's just win it (the game) and go home". In 1991, with Barry Sanders clearly establishing himself as the best rusher in the NFL, the Lions find themselves in the hunt for the postseason. They went 12-4 for the season, and reached the NFC Championship Game, but lost out to the Washington Redskins.

The Lions has won four NFL Championships, but have never played in the Super Bowl. They are one of four current teams to have never played in the big game.

Ford Field In Detroit, Michigan

Ford Field opened in 2002. The stadium's design incorporates a six-story former J.L. Hudson's warehouse, which had stood since the 1920s. The first game at Ford Field was on September 22, 2002 vs. the Green Bay Packers.

The presence of the warehouse along the entire south wall allows for a unique seating arrangement. The 80-year-old buildings have been renovated to include 140 luxury suites on three levels facing the playing field, along with other uses including retail shops and restaurants. Unlike most indoor stadiums, Ford Field allows a large amount of natural light to reach the playing field, thanks to immense skylights and glass-enclosed corners.
