The Detroit Lions
go back to 1929( then known as Spartans) when they first stepped forward as a professional independent act, among the many teams that were quickly cropping up at the time in the valleys of Ohio and Scioto River. The team chose to formally become part of NFL, which was a platform for independent teams during the 1930 season. The Spartans experienced early success with NFL but still could not manage to continue in Portsmouth , which led them to being purchased and moved to Detroit for the later season in 1934 where they officially became the Detroit Lions
Since their inception up until the 1990s, the Detroit Lions
experienced most success in the 1950s, under the lead of quarterback Bobby Lane who was credited for giving the Lions the Hall of Fame reputation for almost a decade; the team gathered the league championship titles in 1952, 1953 and 1957 and in each of these wins, they also won from the Cleveland Browns. Since then the Lionsexperienced something of a winning draught until 1991 when they finally won from the Dallas Cowboys. After the arrival of Barry Sanders, the then famous football running back, the Detroit Lions
began to finally pick up. In the1991 season, they won 5 games even after a devastatingly discouraging, nationally televised season-beginning match against the Washington Redskins, from whom they lost with the absolute score of 45-0. The Lions rebounded with a 12-4 for the season, being welcomed back as the ultimate team by their fans. In the following years of 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997 and 1999 the team made bigger playoffs, bringing the Detroit Lions tickets
more popularity than ever before.
The aggressive, blue and white uniformed Detroit Lions
underwent a losing slump through the years 2000-2008 under Matt Millen as their team president and CEO, recording the lowest winning rate of NFL. In early 2009, the team wisely hired Jim Schwartz as their new head coach under whose lead the Lions bounced back on their third match of the season, defeating Washington Redskins with a 19-14 winning score. The Detroit Lions
attained another victory with a game against the Cleveland Browns, from whom they recoded a close winning score of 38-37 as Mathew Stafford memorably threw the much needed touchdown just when the thrill of the game had almost burnt out. This unpredictable, suspenseful event was the perfect promise-keeping match that the Detroit Lions tickets
aimed to provide.
The 2010 season initially went badly for the Michigan-based, Detroit Lions,
by week 14, however the team began to bounce back to win a series of matches winning a divisional game since long in 2005. They won from the Packers, entering the season’s most important game with the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay , going on further to knockdown the Dolphins and won another game, yet again, from Minnesota . This summed them a remarkable season score of 6-10.
Detroit Lions began the 2011 season with a bright 3-0 start. They won from Kansas City in week 2, establishing an intimidating franchise record of 48-3, crossing over the earlier record of 44 in 1995. The team then won against big name like the Vikings who they beat with a 26-23 score and then claiming victory over the Dallas Cowboys with a 34-30, finally making a 4-0. In week 5 the Lions played against Chicago , making a high profile, primetime appearance that gathered a crowd of 67000 people at the Ford Field. The Lions played tough, defeating the opponent with a roaring 24-13, and this win earned them the 5-0 season. In the following week, Detroit Lions lost from San Francisco but buckled up once more to torturously defeat the Denver Broncos, which brought them to their last week with a notable record of 6-0.
The ferocious lions, under the current direction of head coach Jim Schwartz, are ready to play more knockdown matches, so put the Detroit Lions Tickets in your pockets and be prepared to march on.
