I’ve kind of had to pinch myself the past two weekends. Both of my teams, the MSU Spartans and Detroit Lions, have pulled off wins for two consecutive weekends. That’s a big difference from earlier in the season. Yes, I’m a happy camper.
Now, the Detroit Lions are heading into a week 11 game against the New York Giants. All eyes will be on the team to see if they can pull off three consecutive wins in a row.
If the Lions do win a third consecutive game in a row this Sunday, it will mark the first time they have done so since 2017 during Jim Caldwell’s final season as the Lions head coach. Side note: Why did we let him go? I was a big Caldwell fan.
Back in 2017, Detroit triumphed over Green Bay 30-17, followed by Cleveland 38-24 and then the Bears 27-24. The New York Giants are 7-2 right now, so it seems unlikely that we could pull off a win. But, upsets happen. I mean, look at the Eagles falling to the Washington Commanders. If you’re a football fan, listen to “The Squad with Anne Erickson” on Apple Podcasts HERE, Spotify HERE and below.
