Lions vs. Panthers: What Just Happened?

A collection of thoughts from the Detroit Lions’ awful loss to the Carolina Panthers.

Well, that sucked. With a chance to have a winning record for the first time in the Dan Campbell era, the Detroit Lions fell completely apart in a 37-23 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Their six-game season just got a lot harder because of it.

As always, I have thoughts on this game. These are those thoughts:

All good things must come to an end

It was a ton of fun to watch this Lions team over this last stretch. They’ve been more fun than they’ve maybe ever been. Sadly, the Lions showed on Saturday that just aren’t ready to take a big step in their progress yet. That big step is being the team that expects to win and then goes out and wins. I don’t know if they simply looked past the Panthers or if it was the cold that affected them, but they turtled in this game and they lost that overcomer attitude and swagger that they carried with them through that seven-game stretch.

It’s not fully over. The Lions can still make the playoffs. But it’s looking more and more like things will come down to everyone’s nightmare. Playing the Packers at Lambeau for an opportunity to make the playoffs.
