Allen Park — Lions safety Louis Delmas was asked what it means to be 6-2 halfway through the season.
“It means we’re 6-2,” he answered, then broke into a big grin.
The 6-2 record goes well beyond simple numbers. It means a lot to the Lions, who will enjoy their bye week following an easy 45-10 thumping of the Broncos. A loss to the Broncos would have haunted them, with the big bad Bears lurking in the first game after the bye.
“We have one thing in mind, and that’s to make the playoffs,” Delmas said.
And now, with that impressive 6-2 mark, the playoffs are not that far away for the Lions anymore.
