The Detroit Lions aren’t exactly used to winning, but they certainly know how to troll an opponent.

The Lions took a 22-0 lead in their game against the Washington Commanders on Sunday and never looked back. Whoever was in charge of their Twitter page was still on top Monday after the 36-27 win.

This one was obviously ready to go. For those who don’t understand the reference, the Lions were mocking commanders over an embarrassing gaffe Washington made with their merchandise last week.

A photo has gone viral of mugs the Commanders were selling that featured their blocky “W” logo against a background of Washington state. Commanders, of course, are based in Washington, DC. The team tried to deflect responsibility for the error, but it didn’t work.

The Lions weren’t about to let Washington off the hook. If Detroit continues to win games, it’s unclear what their social media team will come up with next.
