Lions are sloppy again, the defense stinks and that falls on Matt Patricia and the coaching staff after 35-27 loss to Cowboys, Nov. 17, 2019.

We’re just going to keep piling on.
On Sunday night, a few hours after the Detroit Lions lost for the fifth time in six games, Max Goldstein — who tweets out sports statistics at @MaxSportsStudio — offered up this gem of a stat: Of the 12 states in America with at least one MLB, NHL, NHL and NBA team, Michigan’s the only one without a single team above .500 in win percentage.
To make matters worse, none of our four teams are even close to .500. The Lions are 3-6-1. The Detroit Pistons are 4-9. The Detroit Red Wings are 7-12-3. The Detroit Tigers just went 47-114, one of the worst regular seasons in baseball history.
Any guesses on who wins a championship next? And how old we’ll all be
when if it happens?
