The Lions hadn’t won a regular season game since December 2007. From AP-
The Detroit Lions ended their 19-game losing streak by holding off the Washington Redskins 19-14 Sunday.
Matthew Stafford threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Bryant Johnson in the first quarter and the two connected to draw a key penalty to set up a TD in the fourth quarter.
The Lions (1-2) had not won since Dec. 23, 2007 and their skid matched the second longest in NFL history.
Washington (1-2) pulled within five points on Jason Campbell’s second touchdown pass with 2:36 left in the game, but couldn’t prevent the Lions from picking up a first down that ran time off the clock and cost it three timeouts.
These are two of the worst teams in the whole NFL. If they win 10 games between the two of them this year, I’d be greatly surprised.
