The Detroit Lions last played in the NFC Championship game during the 1991 season, where they faced the Washington Redskins. Despite a strong season with a 12-4 record, the Lions fell short in the championship game

Fast forward to the present, the Lions have once again made it to the NFC Championship game, this time against the San Francisco 49ers.

The team finished the regular season with a 12-5 record, tying a franchise record for wins.

They defeated the Los Angeles Rams 24-23 in the wild card round.

Then they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-23 in the divisional round.

It's crazy that It's been 32 years since the Detroit Lions last appeared in the NFC Championship game. And with only one more win the Lions will be making it to their first Super Bowl appearance in franchise history.

A Lot Has Changed Since The Detroit Lions Were Last In The NFC Championship

I was scrolling through my Instagram the other day when I saw a post about the Detroit Lions and things that didn't even exist the last time they were in it 32 years ago.

They highlighted several things that made me feel way too old.

  • The iPod didn't exist
  • Text messaging didn't exist
  • Sam Laporta, Jared Goff, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Jahmyer Gibbs weren't born yet
  • Amazon, Google, Myspace and Facebook didn't exist yet

I was inspired to find 32 things that didn't exist or weren't invented the last time the Lions appeared in the NFC Championship 32 years ago.
