The Lions took on the Falcons at Ford Field on Sunday, and Aidan Hutchinson’s sister Mia Hutchinson gave a rousing rendition of the National Anthem before the teams took to the field.
The Detroit Lions earned a much-needed win against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 of the NFL following a disappointing loss to the Seahawks in Week 2. Dan Campbell’s team managed to bounce back from the defeat to beat the Falcons with a stellar defensive performance. Quarterback Jared Goff was 22 of 33 for 243 yards with a touchdown and an interception as the Lions came away with a 20-6 victory.

‘endlessly grateful for my family/support system for their undying love & brutally honest critiques.
thank you so much @rgirard for giving me this incredible opportunity – you are an ICON. & of course couldn’t have done it without my girl @emily_goy… the sweetest.’
