A return to excellence is the theme for this year’s Detroit Lions season. After the team qualified for the playoffs for the first time in 12 years with an impressive 2011 season, the Lions fell back several steps a year ago with a 4-12 campaign which may make Lions tickets easy to get this year. Head coach Jim Schwartz and quarterback Matthew Stafford will be returning for their fifth years with the Lions. Stafford earned Associated Press Comeback Player of the Year accolades in 2011 and will be looking for similar honors in 2013. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson was another bright spot from a year ago. He set the NFL record for receiving yards (1,964) in 2012 and has been named to the Pro Bowl the last three seasons. Although the Lions have had a tough time of it over the past several years, Detroit is looking to return to the playoffs and to win its first playoff game since 1991
