Detroit Lions fans know all about it, and most likely cringe when relating the story of the infamous incident of the picked-up flag in the NFC Wild Card game against the Dallas Cowboys in 2015 and robbing them of the chance of just their second playoff victory since Dwight D. Eisenhower was POTUS.
But according to Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay, it sounds like he's saying that game should have belonged to the Lions, echoing what we in the Motor City were saying:
Lions fans, you'll be thrilled to know Rams coach Sean McVay says you've won TWO playoff games since 1957. McVay: “I don’t want to get in trouble, but the Dallas game that he had when he was in Detroit, he probably won that. You know, that was out of his control, wasn’t it?”

Of course, it will be former Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford going for his first career playoff victory when his Los Angeles Rams take on the Arizona Cardinals at SoFi Stadium Monday night.
