“I just wanted them to know exactly what we were going to represent today,” Campbell said of his message to the team prior to the game. “The shirts, the hats, the decals, the people that are affected. Some of our players know of someone that was affected. To me, my thought was, ‘Hey, man, if we can, for three hours, just ease their suffering a little bit, that’s worth it.’ So, that’s kinda how I thought of this and we did a great job, players responded and played well.”

The Lions (1-10-1) will travel to Denver to square off against the Broncos next.
