It only took two weeks for the Detroit Lions’ unofficial 2020 theme of “Dagger Time” to be endlessly mocked. After a complete fourth quarter meltdown against the Chicago Bears and getting blown out by the Packers in the second half, “Dagger Time” seemed to be only of the self-inflicted type.
But on Sunday, the Lions finally lived up to that mantra and won a game in a fourth quarter. They made plays—and good decisions—when they needed to. Good players stepped up, and the Lions even showed a little aggressiveness that all contributed to the team’s first win in 11 months.
