1999 2001

The 2000 Detroit Lions season was the team’s 71st season in the National Football League. Coming off of a Wildcard playoff appearance with an 8–8 record in 1999, the Lions improved to finish 9–7, but missed the playoffs thanks to a Christmas Eve home loss to the 4-11 Chicago Bears.

This would be the Lions' sixth winning season, and seventh season at .500 or better, in 10 years -- capping one of the best decades in the franchise's history. It was also the franchise's last winning season until 2011.

The Lions’ home attendance was 606,716 while their attendance on the road was 523,383 for a total attendance of 1,130,099.[1] Bobby Ross resigned after the ninth game of the season and was replaced by Gary Moeller.[2]
