Earlier in the week, Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell told the media that he wanted to give the fans a show in the final game at Ford Field this season, and that is exactly what happened on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. After allowing the Bears to score on their opening drive, the Lions dominated on their way to an impressive 41-10 win. With the victory, the Lions are now 8-8 on the season.
What did Dan Campbell say to Detroit Lions fans?
Following the game, Campbell spoke to reporters, and during his opening statement, he made it a point to thank the fans for being “outstanding.”
“I want to thank our fans,” Campbell said before taking questions. “The fans were outstanding. They’ve been outstanding all year and — this place is loud. It’s just a great, great environment to play in. When you’re a coach or player and you really feel like you have home-field advantage, man that’s a special feeling.”
“I want to thank them again for showing up and being loud. It was awesome.”
The Lions will play their final game of the 2022 regular season next Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
