An NFL team that has a God-given talent for knowing how to lose games. They ALWAYS find a way to lose after leading in the fourth quarter. A rival team to the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers.
The Detroit Lions are probably the best of the worst teams in the NFL.

The embarrassing team of the NFC North. They only team in the NFL in which the fans try to get rid of their tickets.
"Horrible thing happened to me today. I accidently left 2 Detroit Lions tickets on my dashboard, and when I got out of the store, somebody broke the window and stuck 2 more on there!"

the detroit football club which is never unable to lose a game. no matter what the situation, the lions can always find a way to blow the game...
marked by poor coaching, injuries, empty potential, bad drafting, and losing to minnesoda, and a bad O-line.
even thought it was 28-14 at the final 2-minuet warning, the detroit lions still foundaway to blow their 12-point lead

Chicago Cubs of the NFL. A Team that good have Jesus as quarterback and still will lose miserably. Used to have the greatest football player of all time, but still couldn't even get to the NFC championship
Jesus back to pass... Throws it... But it's dropped by Roy Williams. Man the Detroit Lions suck
