The Detroit Lions have proven to be one of the more interesting teams in the NFL so far this season.
As winners of six of their last seven, Detroit is now very much in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Presuming they win out from this point forward, a postseason berth is a virtual certainty.
In addition to Lions being extremely fun to watch as of late, the team’s fans are also making quite the impression.
Case in point, a video between a Lions fan and his wife that went viral this week.
The visual largely speaks for itself:

Game day excitement is contagious.
And football brings people closer together.

Good pass set but terrible pass rush. Took a false step and then abandoned her rush. Also terrible motor https://t.co/XlXbSd8FJF

Lions fans have been in the headlines for some less-than-savory things, like the guy who was busted taking inappropriate photos of the squad’s cheerleaders.
In that respect, it’s nice to see something so wholesome blow up online.

Whether Detroit ultimately makes the playoffs or not in 2023, it’s hard to view this season as anything other than a success.
Hopefully the franchise will be able to build on it for many seasons to come.
