The Detroit Lions officially began in 1930 as the Porstmouth Spartans. Being in Portsmouth, Ohio created challenges in what was the NFL’s smallest city at the time and the Spartans were purchased and relocated to Detroit in 1934 and renamed the Lions.
The Detroit Lions found early success in the NFL, winning four championships (1935, 1952, 1953, 1957), which currently ranks ninth in total championships among NFL teams. Following the AFL-NFL merger, the Lions haven’t been able to rekindle that early success. Detroit remains the lone NFC team to have never appeared in a Super Bowl prior to the start of the 2020 season.
