(Part-2) Lions supporters' 32-year agony ended with a thunderous jubilation in Detroit.

From pregame “Jared Goff” shouts to third-down explosions to that last frenzy they almost couldn't believe, these supporters simply kept getting louder and louder, deafening and then more deafening.“Wild,” said defensive end Aidan Hutchinson."These people," Goff added, "are special, man."

The Lions only advanced to the NFC divisional round. They'll host Philadelphia or Tampa Bay Sunday. In most settings, this would be merely a start, and the Lions locker room was no exception.

“We’re ready to keep it rolling,” safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson said. It was different in the stands and streets. Maybe they'll be happy one day. But not yet. Here was a destination, a fulfilled desire.

They want more and may be louder next week, but when Goff (the Rams' ex-player) hit fourth-round selection Amon-Ra St. Brown for 11 yards and a game-clinching first down, the fans cried.

Hugs too. Dancing. After the clock ran out and minutes passed late on a Sunday night, few people departed. They'd waited half a lifetime to remain and take it up, traffic or not. It was also about being heard. A shout that Detroit and the Lions are here.

They had to listen to the national media ignore their 12-win season, Super Bowl potential, and rising stars this week. The other quarterback, former Lion Matthew Stafford, had requested and been allowed a trade to LA to win a Super Bowl. Could Stafford defeat Detroit again? Would Stafford wreck the Lions' season? Could Stafford...

“I just kept going back to what this game was about,” Goff said of hearing it all week. We were the focus. It was not about them... The 53 in this locker room, our coaches, and our organization wanted a playoff win for the home crowd.”

Goff completed 22 of 27 throws for 277 yards and a score. His offense rattled the Rams with a touchdown on its opening three drives. Stafford was a great competitor, but the Lions' defense prevented him from making plays. Only six LA points came in the second half. After, Campbell said, “All three phases.” You win playoff games that way.”

Win playoff games that way. In Detroit. Who knew? Balanced offense. Strong red-zone defense. Field goal, 54 yards. A loud, noisy audience that unleashed decades of pent-up passion, rage, and elation at once.
