Lions notes: Detroit fans are second-drunkest in NFL

Lions fans are a sad, self-medicated bunch.

  • According to a study, Detroit Lions fans are the second-drunkest fanbase on gameday. The study used the BACtrack app, which essentially is a breathalyzer for your phone. The top five fanbases with the highest game-day blood alcohol content (BAC) levels are as follows.
  1. Buffalo Bills (0.076%)
  2. Detroit Lions (0.069%)
  3. Philadelphia Eagles (0.069%)
  4. Cleveland Browns (0.064%)
  5. Arizona Cardinals (0.062%)
  • Pro Football Focus is just trolling Lions fans now:
  • Matthew Stafford was Wired for Sound in London. Unfortunately, it didn't result in a massive comeback this time around.
  • In a bizarre rant during Tuesday's press conference, Jim Caldwell called the Detroit media the most negative environment he's ever coached in. He also called the media press room the "Dungeon of Doom."
  • Pro Football Focus no longer thinks the Lions have the worst offensive line in the league...they rank 31st.
  • Even though he only carried the ball seven times, Joique Bell was the fifth-best running back by rushing DYAR on Sunday.
