Detroit Lions: Dan Campbell ‘proud’ of his team after first road victory

Since Dan Campbell was hired by the Detroit Lions, the team had had 13 opportunities to pick up a road win, and on 13 opportunities, they found a way to lose the football game. That ended on Sunday when the Lions went into Soldier Field and defeated the Chicago Bears 31-30. For the second week in a row, the Lions’ defense stepped up when they needed to, and it ended up paying off. Following the game, Campbell spoke to reporters and he made it clear how “proud” he is of his team.
