It’s a moment some thought may never happen this season—the Detroit Lions sideline erupting in celebration as they clinch a win.

Campbell embraces quarterback Jared Goff, knocking his headset to the ground. It was truly a special moment for the pair, who likely lost sleep over the idea of going winless in 2021. There was a very real possibility Campbell would make history as the first head coach to 0-16-1. But the Lions have secured their first win of the season, putting at least that concern to bed.
