The Super Bowl Teams vs. The Lions [GRAPHICS]

If you’re looking for one way to make your prediction for Sunday’s Super Bowl match up, maybe you could consider each team’s record against the Lions. 

Or the number of players or coaches who have Lions connections?

WDET brings you that information, along with the University of Michigan connections for a couple Patriots too. We’re pretty sure one is familiar: Tom Brady. After his first play on Sunday, he’ll hold the record for the most Super Bowl games played.
