    Lions have maybe 1 win in 20 tries against the Skins. They play power football. We don't.
    Cut the Kitties some slack.
    There're 3 and 1 :)
    Road game let's hope they don't get hurt...too bad.
    Skins 27
    Lions 21

    I'm going by memory here, but I think that lone victory was in Detroit. The Redskins have been absolutely brutal on the Lions, especially in Washington. Lots of blowouts if I recall, and I don't know if we've ever won there. I'm sure someone will come up with the facts though.

    The Lions were also horrible against Oakland, Minnesota and Chicago, but those were all Ws this year.

    Have some faith Thee! This isn't your typical Lions team.

    The brutal beatings were too much for me. Skins are our daddy.

    But Thee is right, I think. Nobody is worse on Detroit, I believe.

    There's still a game to be played. The field is flat and the ball is round. You never know whatcha gonna get.

    They switched to a round ball? I can't keep up with all of the rule changes these days...

    The Lions all-time record against Washington is 10-25. I'm not sure what the home vs. away breakdown is, but I do remember it is pretty bad at Washington. Detroit has played the Redskins 3 times in the playoffs, all of which were at Washington, all resulting in losses.

    Not bad, it only took you 2 hours to come up with that one.

    Did you google "lame comebacks to a highly superior trash talker" or ask your kids?

    I believe that we're 10-8 against the Redskins at home, but 0-17 at their place. We're the only franchise in the NFL to have NEVER won at an opponents place with at least 10 tries. In 1991, our best season ever, we were 12-4. We lost to the Redskins like 45-0 in the first game. We met the Redskins again in the NFC Championship game and promptly lost again, 41-10.....Who's your daddy !!!!!!!!

    Redskins were getting away with murder that year. Refs were cheating for them [ in blind mode].

    Yea, I bet if the refs didn't cheat, that 45-10 game would have been a lot closer....like 42-13 or something.

    Exactly, every point counts.
    But it wasn't just the Lions they cheated against.
    The "National Defense" [name of Skins defense] was funded by the refs.
