Eminem Proudly Supports Detroit Lions Despite NFC Championship Loss
Eminem, a proud Detroit native and supporter of the Detroit Lions, expressed his pride in the team despite their tough loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Sunday’s NFC Championship game. The 51-year-old rapper, known for hits like “Lose Yourself,” took to X, formerly Twitter, to share his sentiments, stating, “So proud of the @lions. Thanks 4 an amazing season!!!! We’ll b back!!!”
Throughout the season, Eminem actively supported the Lions, attending multiple games and cheering for them, contributing to their successful season, which marked a significant achievement for the team. The NFC Championship appearance on Sunday was the first for Detroit since January 1992.
The game, led by quarterback Jared Goff, witnessed a close battle at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco. Although the Lions initially seemed to have the upper hand, the 49ers mounted a comeback in the second half, scoring 27 unanswered points. Despite the Lions’ late touchdown, it wasn’t enough, and the 49ers secured a 34-31 victory. San Francisco is now set to face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl on Feb. 11 in Las Vegas.
