    Lions still trying for first win at Washington in 70 years

    [size=13pt]Seventy years later, Detroit still trying for first win at Washington [/size]

    LANDOVER, Md. — The Detroit Lions don't visit the Washington Redskins very often. So every time it happens a whole new set of players get that dumbfounded look when presented with one of the more off-kilter streaks in sports.

    Despite seven decades of trying, the Lions have never, ever, ever won at Washington......

    If they have never won there, why even try.

    Because if they lose they'll brake their own record & make it 71 years?

    LOL, Honestly how often do these two teams play anyway?
    I swear the last time despite the playoffs was in the Reagan administration.

    Also, you want to talk hate of another franchise, the Redskins do it for me! I mean don't laugh I remember when the vikes couldn't beat the Redskins and lost like 10 in a row to them at one point in the 80's, including both the 87 game when Kramer threw for 490 yards or something and the championship game where they lost on a pass to Darren Nelson at the goal line.
    We would've beat the Broncos that year.
