That number has jumped as we head into this weekend's NFC Championship game with the Detroit Lions taking on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, January 28th at 6:30 PM (updated map below).

If When the Detroit Lions win, the team will play in its first-ever Super Bowl in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 11th, 2024.

Look at all of that Honolulu blue. According to FOX 59, 37 states are cheering for the Detroit Lions.

 

From lifelong Detroit Lions fans to brand-new bandwagon fans, this season has been quite a ride. The fact that most of America is behind the Detroit Lions, makes this season that much sweeter.

Now may be a good time to start a movement to declare the day after the Super Bowl a national holiday. Nobody in the Great Lakes State (and most of the United States) is going to want to go to work on Monday after watching the Detroit Lions win the big game.

Just putting it out there. Go Lions!
