Although the Detroit Lions didn't provide a whole lot of highlights worth going back and watching in the 2000s, things have changed in recent years. As their record has improved, so too has the number of highlights that actually show something positive for the Lions, as is to be expected.
Even with the void in the 2000s, there are quite a few memorable highlights out there involving the Lions. Barry Sanders basically was a human highlight film, and you could spend hours upon hours just watching his greatness.
While it would have been easy to go with a Sanders highlight video as my favorite for the Lions, I have to go with Matthew Stafford against the Cleveland Browns in 2009. There could not have been a better game for him to be mic'd up considering he got hurt and still managed to throw the game-winning touchdown. Every time I watch this video it reminds me of how lucky the Lions are to have Stafford as their quarterback.
