Lions HC Dan Campbell wants something Detroit can be proud of

A week after earning their first playoff win in more than three decades, the Detroit Lions earned a berth to the NFC championship game after moving past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Lions are now a win away from reaching the Super Bowl.

“I envisioned that we would have a chance to compete with the big boys, and that’s where we’re at,” Campbell said via ESPN. “All you got to do is get in, and it’s about placing yourself in the very best position to where you can move. You get a home game and maybe you get a second home game, and now all of a sudden it gets a little easier.”

It marked the third time in franchise history that the Lions have won multiple playoff games. Detroit holds a stiff challenge ahead on the road against the top-seeded San Francisco 49ers, who inched past the Green Bay Packers.

Detroit will enter the contest as a seven-point underdog, pushing the 49ers as the clear-cut favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl

Through it all, Campbell isn’t taking the playoff experience lightly.

“It’s not the first thing you think of if you go to L.A. or just in general,” Campbell said of Detroit. “You’ve got the sun, you’ve got the beach, you’ve got plenty of other things going on. And here, man, it’s harsh winters, auto industry, blue collar, things aren’t always easy. And I just think, that’s what we’re about. You want something the city can be proud of.”
