The Detroit Lions frustrating season and week continues, as the team announced they have temporarily shut down their facility after two positive COVID-19 tests within their organization on Tuesday. The team will work remotely while they adhere to the league’s COVID-19 protocols and conduct contact tracing.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that it is one player and one non-player who have tested positive for the Lions.

It’s been quite a week for the Lions, who fired special teams coordinator Brayden Coombs on Monday after the coach called a rogue fake punt on Sunday, resulting in criticism from the Twitter accounts of several players and ex-players who liked Coombs. The Lions are 4-5 and have lost four of their last five, and six of their last eight. They host the Buccaneers on Saturday for a 1:00 pm EST kickoff in Week 16.

😂 That’s exactly what I said. How can you lose 6 of your last 8 and be 4-5… Is that that secret Analytics Math?
