The videos detail the events that led to that moment, putting the viewer in the mindset of a fan from that era. Their most recent NFL-based video features the Malcolm Butler interception in Super Bowl XLIX. It highlights the players and plays that helped Seattle make it to the championship game, as well as cover Butler’s transition from undrafted rookie to hero.As of now, the Detroit Lions have yet to be featured on the series, which could be a positive and a negative. On one hand, the Lions have yet to have any truly iconic moments in sports history, a lot of which is attributed to their lack of playoff success; the playoffs only serve to heighten the grandeur of a moment. On the bright side, it also means that the Lions have avoided infamy. They were not the Jets and their Butt Fumble. They did not lose the Super Bowl by a yard. They did not get walked-off by Tim Tebow in the playoffs. All in all, it could be worse for the Lions.That leads into today’s Question of the Day:Which Lions moment could be featured on Rewinder?My answer: As mentioned above, the Lions have yet to go far in the playoffs, which hurts their status. Nonetheless, I can think of three moments where the Lions really shined:1. Lions vs. Browns Womens Graham Glasgow Jersey , 2009This was the moment that solidified Matthew Stafford as the Lions’ franchise quarterback. With a record of 1-8 heading into this game, the Lions were once again looking at another losing season. First overall pick Stafford showed guts and leadership on this game-winning drive, highlighted by him returning from injury to throw a touchdown. Sure, the Lions finished 2-14, but this was a superstar moment for the young player.2. Lions vs. Cowboys, 2013Speaking of superstar moments for Stafford, this game against the Cowboys was possibly his magnum opus. He finished this game with 488 passing yards. Calvin Johnson finished with 329 receiving yards. Despite those incredible numbers, it was the finale that made this game iconic. Marching down to the goal line, Stafford opted to go for a quarterback sneak. The twist? Nobody on either team expected this. It was exciting, it was stunning, and it was fun. The entire game is available on Youtube, and I would highly recommend re-watching it. 3. Lions vs. Cowboys, 1991Throwing back to the Lions’ last playoff victory (that hurt to write) Miles Killebrew Jersey , we got a vintage Barry Sanders moment. Making people miss is what Sanders did best, and on this play he made nearly the entire Cowboys defense look stupid. Despite this being one of my favorite runs of all-time, it lacks the drama to elevate it into an iconic moment. At the time, the score was 31-6 in favor of the Lions, so this incredible run was more of a nail-in-the-coffin than a game-changing play.There are also a few negative moments that could be featured, but in hindsight are mainly memorable to just Lions fans. The Lions vs. Cowboys playoff game, where a pass interference flag was controversially picked up was quite significant to Lions fans, but a lot of the national media has glossed over this event, especially in wake of the Saints getting robbed by a missed call in the playoffs this past season.Speaking of controversial calls, the Lions losing to the Seahawks in 2015 thanks to a batted ball could be featured, but once again falls into the category of being infamous just for Lions fans.Thankfully, the Lions have not had other controversial calls in their recent history. Absolutely nothing that affected the outcome of the game. Nothing that would be memorable. Nothing that would be an iconic moment in a bitter rival’s history. Nope. I cannot think of one. None whatsoever.Damn it.Your turn.Tweets from DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions have beaten Aaron Rodgers– and Tom Brady-led teams this season.And yes, they still have a losing record.Detroit has provided glimpses of its potential Womens T.J. Jones Jersey , beating the Green Bay Packers 31-23 on Sunday in their first home game since dominating the New England Patriots.The Lions (2-3) have also shown they have plenty of weaknesses, which were on display in a 31-point loss to the New York Jets at home and during comeback attempts that fell short on the road against Dallas and San Francisco.Matthew Stafford has had time to throw this season behind an improved offensive line and he has one of the NFL’s best trio of receivers: Kenny Golladay, Golden Tate and Marvin Jones. Rookie Kerryon Johnson and veteran LeGarrette Blount have giving the team a running game it hasn’t had in years. And, the Lions are also having some success on defense under first-year coach Matt Patricia, whose scheme gave Rodgers and Brady problems.Just don’t ask Detroit’s coaches or players to explain how they can look so good in one game and not so good in another because they can’t explain it.“This is the way you want to play the game, out in front and to not have to come back,” said Stafford, who helped the Lions lead 24-0 at halftime. “I just think that we had a great week of practice and it showed in the game.”Here are some other takeaways from the Packers-Lions game.MASON MISSESGreen Bay kicker Mason Crosby cost his team 13 points, missing a career-high four field goals in a game along with an extra point.“I don’t usually get this much attention unless I’ve done something really good or really bad,” Crosby said, surrounded by reporters. “This one is unfortunately really bad.”EMERGING STARGolladay had four receptions for 98 yards and a touchdown, which helped the Lions lead 31-14 in the fourth quarter. His play of the day was a 60-yard reception in which he leaped to catch while covered closely by cornerback Josh Jackson and went on to stiff-arm safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix onto his back.“He’s obviously a big kid, physical kid Darius Slay Jersey White , can run, wants to be a really good player,” Stafford said.The 6-foot-4, 213-pound Golladay has 27 receptions for 428 yards and three TDs this season. The second-year pro, who was a third-round pick from Northern Illinois, had 28 receptions for 477 yards and three scores as a rookie.PIVOTAL PENALTIESGreen Bay was flagged 12 times for 112 yards and one of most costly penalty allowed Detroit to convert a third down. After stopping Golladay short of a first down in the third quarter, rookie safety Tony Brown stood over him and was penalized for taunting.“The negatives that you want to talk about is really about the penalties,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said.NOT A COINCIDENCEThe Lions entered the game giving up an NFL-high 158 yards rushing per game. They allowed Green Bay to gain just 98 yards. That forced Rodgers to pass 52 times, the third-highest total of his career, for 442 yards, the second-highest total of his career.Detroit had kept only one other team to fewer than 100 yards rushing this season and that was the Patriots, the only other team it beat this season.WHAT’S NEXTGreen Bay (2-2-1) will have an extra day of rest and preparation before hosting San Francisco on Oct. 15. The Lions are off until Oct. 21 when they play at Miami.
