Because Samer and I think these are awesome, and completely worth watching, here is 30 minutes of the 1957 NFL Championship Game between the Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns from Briggs Stadium in Detroit, in stunning color TV!
We just wanted to bring you these videos to remind Lions and Browns fans of back in the time when they weren’t scrounging for better draft position, but instead fighting at the top in a battle of dominance. Don’t get too misty-eyed. Also, we didn’t really have any content planned for today and we’re not talking about the playoffs because you can find that anywhere.
Things to look for in this video:
-The lack of penalties called
-Kick-offs from the 40-yard line
-White people, lots of them
And the Lions win the World Championship! Sorry to make you sit through another loss, Cleveland fans.
Lions quarterback Tobin Rote takes home the games MVP honors going 12 of 19 for 280 yards, with 4 passing TDs, and one rushing score.
What a great set of videos that is sure to impress any football fan from any era.
