The Detroit Lions may be one of the NFL’s worst teams of the 2021 season, but that doesn’t change the fact that people have a better time attending their games than the experience.
Across the NFL, there are some very unique pregnancy situations that vary from city to city. While many may not have lined up to give Detroit much credit, the Lions have ranked surprisingly high on a new list of the best pregnancy experiences in the league.

Recently, Bookies.com compiled a list of all gaming experiences across tournaments. The rankings are based on an algorithm that includes many factors, namely how close a team is to the city center, mobility, entertainment around the stadium, and safety and entertainment for players. family.
Perhaps shocking to some, Detroit comes in at number 19 on the list alongside the Arizona Cardinals. Detroit is just behind rival Chicago Bears, who take the 18th spot on the list, but ahead of some of the larger franchises and traditional NFL powerhouses from larger cities like the New England Patriots (27), Buffalo and Buffalo. Bills (24) and New York Giants (23rd).
As Adam Thompson’s piece revealed, there are some positives and negatives to note about Detroit’s pregnancy situation in general.
“Navigation options aren’t great in downtown Detroit. The atmosphere is mostly about walking into the stadium – in other words, not very exciting. But its location for Motor City residents is very walkable and there are many recreational activities in the county, including Tigers Stadium next door,” Thompson said in the analysis.
However, many outsiders might have assumed that the Lions could nestle safely in the lower if not 32nd overall because Detroit is often looked down upon nationally, but that’s simple. simply not. The algorithm seems to like the location of the Ford Fields as well as their fit with the criteria enough to be close to the average rating.
Ford Field takes up unique space in Detroit
One neat aspect of the Lions’ situation is that their stadium is located near Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers. It’s also within walking distance of the Little Caesars Arena, home to the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Pistons. That creates a situation where all four of the city’s major sports teams are close to each other. Theoretically, a crossover could create a situation where the city center becomes lively, with multiple sports, concerts or major events taking place at once, adding to the atmosphere. fun in town.
Maybe if there’s an improvement to be had from this, it would be appropriate. If Detroit can add a bit in that respect, it could make the game day experience much better in the future.
Opened in 2002 after the team relocated from the aging Silverdome, Ford Field is one of the newer stadiums used in the NFL and as a result hosted Super Bowl 40 in 2006. The stadium has also been hosted numerous major events such as the 2008 NCAA Regional Finals, the 2009 Finals and the 2010 NCAA Frozen Four. Detroit will also soon host the 2024 NFL draft, putting what Detroit has to offer on display. for a nationwide audience.
Future Lions may soon improve rankings
Could one big variable drive these numbers beyond further reviving Detroit? The fact is that the Lions could be poised for a big change on the field in the coming years with more wins. After decades of stumbling in the wilds of football, the Lions have cleared their homes for the 2021 season and managed to bring in a Brad Holmes savvy general manager as well as head coach Dan Campbell. The ability of Holmes to add interesting players to the roster and Campbell to attract players as well as fans and their characters will be a big plus for the Lions going forward. If Detroit starts to win more games and finds a way to turn the tide, the team could soon have one of the hottest football markets.
For many years, Detroit was known as the first football town despite the nickname “Hockey Quarter” for many years, but the lack of success gave fans little reason to maintain that momentum and shows how passionate they can be. If the Lions kick things off high, there’s a good chance they’ll break into the top 10 in the near future as the city moves up.
