After a rough start to the season, the Detroit Lions began to turn their season around in the latter half of the season winning seven of their last nine games of the season. The win streak managed to turn the Lions into a team many had written off into a playoff contender.

With their winning streak in the back half of the season, the Lions put themselves into playoff contention heading into Week 18. It’s a welcome change for fans of the team who have had to weather quite a rough patch in recent years.

After being ruled out of the playoffs in recent years due to disappointing seasons, the playoffs are within reach for the Detroit Lions. It’s’ something that has many fans on the edge of their seats and also curious to know when exactly was the last time the Lions made it into the NFL postseason.

Last time the Detroit Lions made the playoffs

It’s been six years since the Lions last made the playoffs with the team’s most recent playoff appearance coming in 2016. During their last playoff run, the Lions lost in the Wild Card Round to the Seattle Seahawks.

Ironically, in order for the Lions to make it into the playoffs, Detroit needs the Seahawks to lose their game against the Las Angeles Rams.

When was the last time the Detroit Lions made it to the Super Bowl?

The last time the Detroit Lions made the Super Bowl was in 1991 when they lost to the Washington Redskins by a score of 41-10. The Lions are one of only a few teams who have yet to win a Super Bowl.
