Detroit lion Head coach Dan Campbell wears a heart on his sleeve.
So it came as no surprise that the sophomore head coach gave an emotional post-match speech following Detroit’s 31-30 win over Chicago Bears Sunday at Soldier Field, marking the first time the the lion won consecutive games during Campbell’s 26-game tenure.
“We talked about getting it twice in a row, we got it twice in a row,” Campbell exclaimed. “…We talked about our first road win in two years, and we did. It was a big man. Just start stacking.
The win is Detroit’s first road win since a 34-30 win over Chicago on December 6, 2020, marking a 13-game losing streak. This is also the first time the Lions have won consecutive games since Weeks 6 and 7 of the 2020 season.
Sunday also marked the first time the Lions have come back with 14 points in the fourth quarter since 1993. Before that, they had lost 98 consecutive games when they were behind at least two touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
