The Lions have the second-longest playoff victory drought in the NFL.
Detroit's last playoff victory was way back during the 1991 season against the Dallas Cowboys.
Only the Cincinnati Bengals have waited longer for a playoff victory.
In the 2010s, the Lions appeared in the postseason on three occasions. Unfortunately, Detroit was unable to secure victories against the Saints, Cowboys and Seahawks.
According to Lions ownership, Matt Patricia must have his squad in playoff contention next season in order to maintain his job as head coach.
It may be quite the feat, considering all the recent coaching staff changes and the possible departures of guard Graham Glasgow and defensive tackles A'Shawn Robinson and Damon "Snacks" Harrison.
