The Detroit Lions’ quest for an unlikely playoff spot continues Sunday afternoon. After sweeping the (now) 11-3 Minnesota Vikings last week, the Lions are in a position where they can very realistically run the table and have a better than 90 percent chance of making the postseason. Even going 3-1 in the final four games leaves Detroit open thanks to its current 5-1 record. However, coach Dan Campbell believes a clean sheet is probably their best (and perhaps only) option.

“We know we have a chance, but we also know we need to win here, and it all starts with the Jets,” Campbell said Friday. “We don’t do our business, it’s all for nothing.”

It really starts this Sunday against the New York Jets. The Jets are in contention for a playoff spot, currently sitting on the outside looking in at their 7-6 record. However, this is a critical week for the Jets for reasons beyond the playoff race. With Mike White injured, the Jets return 2021 second overall pick Zach Wilson to start at quarterback.

Wilson was benched a few weeks ago after playing poorly and refusing to take responsibility for some of the team’s struggles. It might be a little premature to call this game his last chance to prove himself, but there’s certainly added pressure on the 23-year-old quarterback to show he can still be the Jets’ franchise quarterback.

Can the Lions make Wilson’s return a memorable one, or will the Jets see a resurgence just when they need it?

Here’s how to watch the Week 15 matchup between the Lions and Jets.
