Today’s start by Lions left tackle Jeff Backus is the 171st consecutive start of his career. He is now tied with Lions Hall of Fame CB Dick LeBeau for the most consecutive starts in team history.

Backus has started every game since he was drafted in the first round in 2001.

He now has the seventh-most consecutive starts by an offensive lineman in the NFL since 1970
