NFL Films presents the Detroit Lions' dismal 1996 season, which culminated in a 5-11 record and resulted in the firing of head coach Wayne Fontes and his entire staff. The high point of the season was an early three-game winning streak, which included a 27-0 shutout win over division rival Tampa Bay. The team's early-season heroics were overshadowed by a five-game losing streak to end the season. This video retrospective chronicles the team's ups and downs and follows top performers like Barry Sanders, who rushed for 1,553 yards.
