Mike Tirico upsets Detroit Lions fans with post-game comment

On Thursday Night Football, during a hard-fought contest lasting 60 minutes, our Detroit Lions secured a significant victory over the defending Super Bowl Champion, Kansas City Chiefs. While leading by a single point, the Lions’ defense rose to the occasion, sealing the game and preventing Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes from making another comeback win. However, the elation of Lions fans was somewhat dampened by a controversial post-game comment from NBC commentator Mike Tirico.

What did Mike Tirico Say?

Following the game, Tirico suggested that the Lions’ win came with an “asterisk” due to the absence of key Chiefs players, including Chris Jones and Travis Kelce.

“This comes with an asterisk due to the absence of Chris Jones and Travis Kelce,” Tirico said after the conclusion of the game.

Jones has been engaged in a contract holdout, seeking higher earnings, while Kelce had to sit out the game due to a bone bruise sustained the previous week.

Why it Matters

This remark by Tirico sparked frustration among supporters and media, leading to debates about the significance of the Lions’ victory.

Here is just a very small sampling of the reaction to Tirico’s comment.

Regardless of the controversy, Detroit heads home with a 1-0 record, ready to face the Seattle Seahawks at Ford Field.
