Detroit Lions fall short in Green Bay… Again

Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson played his first NFL game in 1992; more than 20 years ago. Every one of his 21 NFL seasons has been in Detroit, yet he still hasn’t beaten the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. 21 seasons ago, in 1991, the Detroit Lions went to Wisconsin and beat the Packers.  Since then, Detroit has exactly zero wins when facing the Packers on the road, and...

Fairley's maturity showing through success

ALLEN PARK, Mich. Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley was arrested twice during the offseason, once for allegedly driving 100 mph while under the influence of alcohol back in his hometown of Mobile, Ala. He was fortunate there was no tragic outcome like the one early Saturday morning involving Dallas Cowboys practice-squad player Jerry Brown Jr. Brown was killed in a car...

Capers Stuck to Guns to Stop Lions' Run Game
