NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Every year, the Detroit Lions create a new hype video that gets the Ford Field crowd bumping as the team readies to take the field. This year is no different, as the Lions partnered with the production company 160over90 to create a thrilling video.

Chris Burke of The Athletic has a full story on how the video was made this year. This year, the video was made as more of a tribute to the fans, rather than an explicit focus on the team itself.

The most notable part in the video is the inclusion of the 2014 playoff game in which Brandon Pettigrew was interfered with, but the officials in Dallas decided to pick up the penalty flag at a crucial moment. As the images from that moment cross over the screen, Michigan native Jeff Daniels narrates:

“I never thought a heart could break so many times and keep going, but I never knew a heart could feel so alive, either.”

Watch the entire video here, and don’t forget to read Burke’s article on its creation.
