Eminem is proving to be a good luck charm for the Lions.

Eminem was back in attendance at Ford Field for the Detroit Lions' win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. The broadcast caught the iconic rapper screaming in celebration while watching the game from a skybox in the stadium.

It was a tightly contested game throughout with the Lions winning 31-23 after Bucs' quarterback Baker Mayfield threw an interception on his team's final drive. It's the second time in the franchise's history that they'll compete in the NFC Championship.

Eminem previously made an offer to coach Dan Campbell to suit up for the team if they need him on Sunday. “Yo, Dan, I’m reporting. I’m going to report. Third quarter,” he joked in a video on Instagram, earlier in the week. “I’m reporting, offensive line, eligible receiver. I’ll be the quarterback, the entire line, (the) offensive line. And the receiver, I will throw it to myself and score a touchdown. In the third quarter. Just give me a uniform. Or at least just a helmet.” Check out a clip of his appearance at the game below.
