The Detroit Lions finally won their first game of the season on Sunday, defeating the Minnesota Vikings 29-27. The team’s last regular-season victory came on Dec. 6, 2020.
The win was sealed after Jared Goff connected with rookie wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown for a touchdown as time expired.nGoff said in an on-field post-game interview: “Oh, man, I don’t know if I have the words right now. We kind of let that thing slip away from us there at the end. There was a lot of feeling around here of it going one way and we made it go the other today.”
Head coach Dan Campbell dedicated the win to the victims of the recent shooting at Oxford High School, which is located approximately 30 miles outside of Detroit. “This game ball goes to the whole Oxford community– all those who were affected,” he told reporters.
The Lions’ will next face the Denver Broncos on Sunday, December 12th.
