The Detroit Lions are members of the NFC North Division. The team’s home field is Ford Field located in Detroit, Michigan. Founded in 1929, the Lions initially were called the Portsmouth Spartans, an independent football team based out of Ohio. By 1930 the Lions were granted full NFL membership and finished their season with a steady record. At this time the soon to be Lions and the Chicago Bears had the same amount of victories on record after the regular season. In order to determine a winner the two teams played each other, leading to the establishment of the first playoff game. The team moved to Detroit in 1934.

By the 1950s the Lions were enjoying their most successful era at the current time, making Detroit Lions tickets a hot item. They won the League Championship three times in six years, defeating the Cleveland Browns each time. Since then the Lions have earned a few division championship wins and made several playoff appearances, but the closest they have come to the Super Bowl summit was in 1993 when the Lions won the NFC Central. In any case, the Detroit Lions continue to roar out on the field against their division rivals, the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.
