The struggle in Detroit is especially overwhelming after a stunning loss to the rival Green Bay Packers. As a town and a football franchise, we've seen enough sorrow for multiple lifetimes.

Coverage of Thursday Night Football opened with a beautiful tribute to the struggle in Detroit, narrated by Michigan's own Jeff Daniels. After what transpired in the following game, the trailer is both prescient and foreboding. Yet on a day in which the strife is almost unbearable, this video still brings hope.

Go Lions.
