In 1976, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the NFL and began a record that they have held on to ever since. The record, if you didn't know, is for the most consecutive losses in NFL history. Beginning this season, that record stands to be challenged by a team that has taken one infamous honor away from the Buc's already, by going 0-16, and that team is none other then the beloved Detroit Lions.

The Lions are now at 0-17, with a schedule that includes both Super Bowl teams from 2008, and six games of against NFC Central rivals, whom have all noticeably upgraded their teams. So the big question is, can it be done?

The Lions have managed to own the record for the most consecutive away losses in a row, and the most losses in a season. Is there anything to stop them from getting this honor, as well? Only time will tell. This can only be answered by week 10. I hope this is a record that won't be broken, but Detroit seems to be on a mission.
