Eminem Asks Rams QB for Favor Ahead of Detroit Lions Playoff Game: ‘You Owe Me’

Eminem, a longtime Detroit Lions fan, has a message for Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford: “You owe me.”

In a promo clip on X (formerly Twitter) ahead of the Lions’ playoff game against the Rams on Sunday (Jan. 14), the iconic rapper made a desperate plea to the former Lions QB.

“Stafford, what’d I say? You owe me this favor, bro,” Em said in a video during Saturday’s Chiefs-Dolphins game. “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!”

The “Lose Yourself” rapper, who in the clip wears a No. 20 custom Barry Sanders hoodie, is referencing his 2022 Super Bowl halftime show at SoFi Stadium near L.A., where the Rams took home a victory against the Cincinnati Bengals. The memorable performance also featured an all-star hip-hop lineup of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent.

Stafford spent 12 years with the Lions before being traded to the Rams in 2021. During that time, the QB lost three playoff games in the first round. Stafford was traded to the Rams for the Lions’ current quarterback Jared Goff.

The Lions — who haven’t won a playoff game since 1992 — will face off agains the Rams at Detroit’s Ford Field on Sunday (Jan. 14). The highly anticipated match-up marks the Lions’ first home playoff game in 30 years and the NFL team’s first-ever at Ford Field.
