The 1995Detroit Lions season was the team's 66th in the National Football League (NFL). It marked the Lions third consecutive playoff appearance, and fourth in five seasons. For the third consecutive year, however, the Lions could not win a playoff game and were eliminated.
At the end of Week Ten, the Lions had posted a record of just 3–6, and looked poised for a losing season. However, starting with a Week Eleven win over Tampa Bay, the Lions won their final seven games of the season, securing second place in the NFC Central and a playoff berth.
Herman Moore had a career season as he broke Cris Carter’s record for most receptions in a season. Moore and teammate Brett Perriman (108 catches) became the first WR duo to each catch more than 100 receptions in the same season.
In his highly successful 1995 season Moore caught a career high 123 balls (an NFL record at the time). The Lions' 436 points scored was the most in franchise history until it was eclipsed by the 2011 team.
The Eagles scored 31 points in the second quarter, recorded 6 interceptions, and held future hall of fame running back Barry Sanders to just 40 rushing yards en route to a 58–37 victory in the 2nd highest scoring game in NFL postseason history.
