“It burns me. Of course, it burns me. That will be there until the day I die. That's not going to go away. It does. I also know I can't wallow in that and let that pull me down.”Via – The Detroit News
Why it matters: Campbell readily took the blame for losing due to his risky decision to attempt a field goal with 1:14 left in the game. This was a mistake as Seibert missed and three plays later the Vikings took the lead and won the game. This obviously left a mark on Dan Campbell as he went on to say “It happened for a reason”.
“It is what it is and it happened for a reason and honestly, I think us losing five in a row is why we're at where we're at right now. That's kind of how I look at it. Maybe we needed this to happen to get to where we're at right now, at this point.”Via – The Detroit News
Dan Campbell: The Big Picture
The week three loss to the Minnesota Vikings dropped the Detroit Lions to one and two for the season. It also marked a spiral downward as the Lions went on to lose the next four games in a row. Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions have since recovered and currently sit on a three-game winning streak. They look to face the Vikings again this Sunday for the back half of their home-and-home series.
What The Fans Are Saying
The fans seem to be looking forward to the rematch this Sunday.
We wish all the best to our Detroit Lions vs the Minnesota Vikings!
