The Lions appear to have 13. Now's the time for that chunky fresh horsefeathers comparison analogy to come back into play.
If the Bears can luck into winning a damn SB, then, god help us, so can the Lions, and then ALL BETS ARE OFF.
Eh, even if the Lions lucked into a SB, as far as propping up fandoms with 1 team the 85 Bears is so much greater than anything the Lions could pull off. Though they'd have recency in their favor (for all the millenials like me not even alive for 85).
You were one off on DET by the way 14. Although that particular metric doesn't show how poorly Detroit has managed at being anything above mildly above average, as once you get to 10 wins they drop off a cliff where the Bears managed to actually be legitimately good and not 9-7 good many times. Also the flip side where you look up 11+ loss seasons show how good/bad Detroit is at pounding the bottom end of that spectrum including 0-16 and a couple 2 win campaigns.
Or just look up the cumulative W-L. 0.484 verse 0.420.
God I can't believe I spent all that time to prove "At Least We're Not Detroit"! "
