From the Wall Street Journal:
Detroit is a playoff team. Wait, what?
Let's admit that most humans only watch the Lions play once a year—on Thanksgiving, under a tryptophan spell, so desperate to avoid speaking to in-laws they don't mind three hours of disoriented football from Michigan. But the Lions have been incrementally improving, and have a double-digit sack machine in Ndamukong Suh. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is healthy, and Detroit—which finished with a four-game winning streak in 2010—has designs on its first postseason since 1999. Lions football without scary cranberry jelly from a can? Delicious.
