With a top-five choice, the Detroit Lions started the season 1-6 and looked set for yet another disappointing year. Jamaal Williams, the running back, scored three touchdowns on Sunday, helping the squad win its third straight game.
The Lions are just one and a half games out of the last NFC Wild Card berth going into their Thanksgiving Day game. After the Green Bay Packers Thursday loss to the Tennessee Titans, they are currently in second place in the NFC North.
Outside of Detroit, many dismissed the team. But those present in the Lions’ locker room accepted it. And a three-game winning streak isn’t enough for them. Indeed, Williams warned reporters on Sunday that the Lions might make a late postseason run. We are now engaged in it.

Saquon Barkley, the NFL’s leading rusher, was stopped by the Lions, who gave him just 22 yards on 15 carries. Daniel Jones, the quarterback, was intercepted twice in this game by Detroit. He had just three picks all season before he entered the competition.
Dan Campbell, the head coach, has bragged about the importance of teaching his team how to win. They have unquestionably aced the test as of right now. Now, everything revolves around maintaining the good times.
“That really feels amazing, and I believe that’s what’s really motivating us right now. Nobody wants to return to that sense of defeat. It’s not like everyone wants to go there. The defensive tackle Alim McNeil remarked, “Winning is everything.
The Lions play the Buffalo Bills in their yearly Thanksgiving Day matchup when they return home. Detroit will play on Thanksgiving Day without star corner Jeff Okudah as they attempt to go on their first four-game winning streak since 2016.
