The Detroit Lions have hit the ground running, and it’s the most exciting time to be a fan in a long time. Not only is the team in the midst of an incredible playoff run, but it’s also an extremely young team, meaning this could just be the beginning for this Lions franchise. Oh, and on top of that, thanks to the struggling Los Angeles Rams, the Lions could also be looking to pick a top-five pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Clearly, this optimism has rubbed off heavily on Detroit’s pride, as for the second week in a row, the majority of the staff is picking the Lions to beat a team with a winning record. Last week, 10 of 12 correctly picked the Lions to beat the Vikings. 11 of 12 predict the Lions to emerge victorious this week.
However, the New York Jets present an interesting challenge. Detroit is riding an offense that has averaged 32.2 points over its last five games. However, the Jets have only allowed 30 points once all season. Detroit is 1-5 in games where they fail to score at least 30 points this season, but every Lions win prediction from our staff has the Lions falling short of that 30-point mark.
