Detroit Lions Panoramic Picture - Ford Field
This panorama spotlights the Detroit Lions hosting the Atlanta Falcons in the recently renovated Ford Field in downtown Detroit, Michigan. Ford Field opened in 2002 and is a distinctly Detroit venue with the stadium's Southside built around original brick that remained from the city's iconic Hudson's Warehouse. The Lions are one of the oldest teams in the NFL. Originating as the Portsmouth, Ohio Spartans in 1930, they were later purchased and moved to the Motor City in 1934. The Lions won the NFL Championship in 1952, 1953 and 1957. The Thanksgiving Day game is the greatest tradition in Detroit Lions football. Beginning in their very first season, the turkey day tradition continues to this day.
