The Lions won last week ---

Yes, the Detroit Lions of the NFL, breaking a 19 game losing streak in which they broke an NFL record going 0-16 last year.

Previously Tampa Bay went 0-14 in 1976 prompting their head coach’s famous reply… when asked what he thought of his team’s execution, John McKay replied, “I’m in favor if it.” He also got some press for his infamous “We didn't block real good, but we made up for it by not tackling.”

Since the Lions got the monkey off their backs, the current longest NFL losing streak belongs to the St. Louis Rams @13 consecutive games, with an 0-3 start this season coupled with a 10 game losing streak to finish 2008.
