Lions defensive linemen wear ugly Christmas sweaters (GALLERY)

While some NFL teams are selling ugly Christmas sweaters, the Detroit Lions are not one of them.

But that doesn’t mean the team isn’t feeling the holiday spirit in the locker room. The team’s defensive line got together on Monday and wore crazy Christmas sweaters. And, surprisingly, it was Ndamukong Suh who first came up with the idea to dress up and take a Christmas photo.

Here are a few photos of the linemen donning the eccentric sweaters.

Unfortunately, no photo of Devin Taylor wearing a green onesie has surfaced as of yet.

It is, however, great to see teammates having fun and enjoying the holiday spirit. The Lions currently trail the Packers by one game for the NFC North lead. But they’re winning the sweater game, and that’s important.
