The Saints made a very rocky start to their NFL tenure going almost twenty years without recording a single positive season. They did however recover and in recent years have been steadily improving and they had a reasonably good season last year. The Lions have been less successful in recent years going ten years without qualifying for the playoffs. Their form has been in a slump in the past few years as well and they failed to qualify for the playoffs once again.
The New Orleans Saints were founded in 1967 as an expansion team and tasted their first success in 1987 when they qualified for the playoffs for the very first time. Since that time the Saints have won one conference championship, five division titles and won the Super Bowl in 2009 in their first appearance.
Both teams have historically been very dissimilar which is why it is always interesting to see how they play against each other. With them squaring off this season after a little gap, it will be fascinating to see how the game pans out.
