There was plenty of fireworks between the Detroit Lions and Washington Commanders on Sunday. Detroit jumped out to an early 22-0 lead before Washington mounted a furious second-half comeback, but the Lions ultimately emerged with a 36-27 win.
Following their thrilling victory, the team's Twitter account hilariously trolled the Commanders on Monday morning.
The Lions' social media team posted an image with a W to signify their win. But what really makes this a shot at Washington is the use of a mug and outline of the state of Michigan, which is a direct reference to a mishap the Commanders' marketing team made earlier this season.
The Commanders were reportedly selling mugs at their stadium in Week 1 that had the outline of Washington state, instead of Washington, D.C., on them. They were promptly roasted for this mistake and it looks like Detroit isn't letting them live it down, either.
It's great to see the Lions be able to have fun at someone else's expense this early in the season. Detroit notably didn't record its first win until Week 13 of last year, but now they're already in the W column after just two games.
The Lions' revamped offense will be the key to fueling a potential winning record in 2022. They've already put up a combined 74 points in just the first two contests, and that's without top draft pick Jameson Williams.
