As if being a supporter of the Detroit Lions is not challenging enough.
With their latest 19-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Lions became the first team in NFL history to lose on a successful field goal of over 50 yards twice in the same season.
Have the Lions now also become an adjective to describe heartbreaking losses?
At the conclusion of a tough Indianapolis Colts loss to the Baltimore Ravens, Steve Levy of ESPN levied a description of the loss that should sting all of Detroit.
"The Colts, kind of a Lions kinda loss," Levy said, as the Ravens came from behind to defeat the Colts, 31-25, in overtime.
At one point, the Ravens were trailing, 25-9, with 12:04 remaining in the game.
Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson continued his stellar play, as he tossed a touchdown pass to tight end Mark Andrews to cut into the Colts' lead.
