What else could possibly happen?
Last Sunday, the Detroit Lions jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the first quarter against the Seattle Seahawks, and still managed to lose by 12 points.
And the beatings go on.
The Lions have been shut out, lost late leads, fallen short in fourth-quarter comebacks, lost because of offense, defense, and special teams.
And that’s just this season. The only good news this season is that the team hasn’t lost by two after an unforced safety.
But the Lions are about to play Minnesota, so who knows?
In all seriousness, though, the Lions losing seven out of eight games played this season is no big surprise.
What is surprising is the ability of the Lions to find unique ways to lose those games. No two losses have been quite the same.
