Incredibly after a disgusting start to the season the Lions went on a big non-losing streak of 8-0-1 and get to the playoffs (!) after losing to the Vikings on the season finale thanks to a little help from the Eagles (go Julio!).
So, what happened to spark the run? Affinities, baby! Filled the team with them as much as I could. Should have done that years ago, I guess.
Good luck in the playoffs, everyone.
