For the first time in 32 years, the Detroit Lions have won a playoff game


Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

The last time the Detroit Lions won a playoff game, George H.W. Bush was president and the Russian Federation was only a few days old. But yesterday, for the first time in 32 years, the Lions roared in the postseason. In a 24-23 nailbiter, the Lions and quarterback Jared Goff defeated his former team, the LA Rams. And Lions fans might not have to wait three decades for another playoff win, as they'll host the winner of tonight's Eagles-Buccaneers game next week.
