The Detroit Lions had a rough end to a magical run last season.

After winning 12 games and the NFC North for the first time in division history, the Lions blew a 17-point halftime lead in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers en route to a heartbreaking 34-31 loss.

All-Pro wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown and the Lions still have a heavy weight on their shoulders after their season ended poorly in the Bay Area.

“Even though we’re not the underdogs, we still feel like we are. We still feel like teams think we’re the same old Lions,” St. Brown recently said on “The Pivot.”

The Lions have been a losing franchise throughout their history. Since 2000, they have made the playoffs only five times.

Until last season, they had not won a playoff game since the 1991 season and had never played in the Super Bowl.

But now, it appears head coach Dan Campbell has turned things around. After being hired in 2021, Campbell guided Detroit to a 3-13-1 record. The following season, Detroit went 9-8 and achieved its first winning record since 2017.

Last year, they conquered the league and came agonizingly close to making their first Super Bowl appearance.

The turnaround is largely due to good players like St. Brown, Pro Bowl quarterback Jared Goff, Pro Bowl running back Aidan Hutchinson and many others.

It will be interesting to see how the Lions respond after there was seemingly more meat left on the bone at the end of last season that wasn’t devoured.
