The Detroit Lions‘ pure domination of the Jacksonville Jaguars has Twitter exploding this evening. The Lions sent the Jaguars to another planet, beating them 40-14.
The Lions didn’t even give the Jags a chance to come back, scoring on every single drive and holding them to nothing on six of nine drives. A healthy Lions team is proving to be lethal on offense, and the defense has finally figured it out. Head Coach Dan Campbell was extremely pleased with the performance of the entire team today.
“Alright, that was a good win, man. Guys played their hearts out. I feel like this is five weeks in a row we continue to grow and get better. I felt like this was a big win for us. I did. Cause I just feel like this is a game that can catapult us through December. It was big to win, it was big to come off a loss, and it was big to win that way against a team that’s a lot like us in trying to turn a corner, get everything turned back the other way. They do have some youth, they have talent. They were playing pretty good football. Came off a big win. Our guys played hard. We said going into this game, the bigs did a good job, but really we felt like our skill guys had to show up. That was the key, our receivers and our DBs. We knew it was that type of game and, boy, they did. All the way across the board our skill (players) played top-notch today.”
Coach Campbell wasn’t the only one pleased with the team today, Twitter felt the same way. After the game, a plethora of Lions fans took to Twitter to celebrate the win. Here are some of the best Tweets:
