Eminem, Long-Suffering Lions Fan, Asks Rams QB to Let Detroit Win Playoff Game

“You owe me this favor, bro. I was there for you when you won it,” rapper tells Matthew Stafford. “Can you just let us have this one?”

Eminem, in addition to being a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted rapper, is also a long-suffering Detroit Lions fan. In a promo cut before the team’s playoff game Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, Eminem asks former Lions (and now Rams) quarterback Matthew Stafford to help him and Detroit out.

“Stafford, what’d I say?” Eminem asks in the video NBC shared during Saturday’s Chiefs-Dolphins game. “You owe me this favor, bro. I was there for you when you won it. I was there for you. I was right there. I rapped for you Stafford. Bro, I rapped for you!”

Stafford spent 12 years on the Lions, losing in the playoffs three times in the first round. He was traded to the Rams in 2021 (for now-Lions QB Jared Goff) and immediately won the Super Bowl at the helm of the Los Angeles team.


The Lions, owners of the longest drought without a playoff victory in NFL history, haven’t won a playoff game since January 1992. They also haven’t played a playoff game at home since January 1994, when they lost to the Green Bay Packers. The Lions’ seven playoff games since then — all losses — have taken place on the road. Sunday marks the Lions’ first playoff game at Detroit’s Ford Field, which opened in 1999.

Eminem, who recently appeared in a documentary about Lions legend Barry Sanders, made on last plea, “Can you just let us have this one? Just this one?”
