The first playoff game at Ford Field stadium and the first home playoff game in more than 30 years brought out some of the biggest names in Detroit to Ford Field, including Eminem and Big Sean.
Jared Goff threw for a touchdown and completed a game-sealing first down against the team that cast him away, and the Detroit Lions won a playoff game for the first time in 32 years, beating Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams with the score 24-23 last night. The Lions (13-5) ended a nine-game postseason losing streak – the longest in NFL history – that dated to a victory over Dallas in January 1992. They lost a home playoff game two years later and hadn’t hosted one since. (via The Guardian)
Eminem, Big Sean and more were at the Ford Field ahead of Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams game, taking pictures with Lions legendary players like Barry Sanders and Calvin Johnson.
Slim Shady, who attended the game with his daughter Hailie, his long-time friend and manager Paul Rosenberg and D12 group-mates Bizarre and Mr. Porter, also took some time to take some pictures with the fans.
In the video below, the woman that Eminem first shakes hands with is Sheila Ford. She is the principal owner and chairwoman of the Detroit Lions and part of the Ford family, which has a long history of ownership of the Lions. Sheila Ford took over as the principal owner after the passing of her mother, Martha Firestone Ford, in 2020. The Ford family has been associated with the Lions since 1963 when Martha’s late husband, William Clay Ford, purchased the team.
