Question: When was the last time the Detroit Lions won the NFL Championship?
Answer:

The last time the Lions won the NFL Championship was back in 1957, when they beat the Cleveland Browns 59 to 14 at Briggs Stadium. Head Coach George Wilson took over that season from Raymond “Buddy” Parker, who had led the Detroit Lions during their greatest era of success: The Lions beat the Cleveland Browns to win the NFL Championship in both 1952 and 1953. Note: The Lions played in the NFL Championship Game of 1954, but they lost to the Cleveland Browns that year.
