Feliz Navidad! The Lions Make The Playoffs

By: Alex LaGrone

Despite two red-zone interceptions by Detroit Lions quarterback, Matthew Stafford and a few costly special team blunders, the 11-4 Lions are headed to the playoffs. Last weekend the Lions squeezed by yet another opponent, this time a 20-14 victory over the troubled 5-10 Chicago Bears.

The Lions fans should be celebrating the fact that they will be going to the post-season and playing the Green Bay Packers this weekend for the NFC North Crown and a first round bye.
It's safe to say, if they keep playing the way they have the last few games, their stay in the playoffs will last about as long as a continental breakfast. 
The Bears played without it's starting quarterback, Jay Cutler, who was benched by head coach Marc Tresman. Cutler was benched due to his poor play. Cutler, before the season, signed a new 7 year $126 million contract.
All he has given them is 24 turnovers through 14 games – four more than any quarterback in the league. Instead, Bears head coach woke Jimmy Clausen from hibernation and the Lions defense didn't really knock him around.
Everyone knows it'll take more to beat the Packers with Aaron Rogers and company. Enough of that . Let's just celebrate the fact that the Lions are 11-4 and have ensured their best finish since 1991.
Lions head coach Jim Caldwell deserves a lot of credit by turning the team around in his first season. "That's what I'm supposed to do, Caldwell said. That's why they hired me, to come in here and win games."
Lions Note: The NFL suspended Lions center, Dominic Raiola, for one game without pay. Raiola stomped on the ankle of Bears defensive lineman, Ego Ferguson, during the game last weekend. Raiola said he "inadvertently" stepped on his ankle.
Raiola was fined $10,000 earlier this season for unnecessary roughness when he clubbed New England Patriots lineman, Zach Moore, in the back of the head. C'mon man.
Happy Holidays to everyone. Remember JESUS is the reason for the Season!
