Having looked at the individual match-ups of the season, it’s hard not to think the schedule looks easier this year than previous years. That’s par for the course in the NFL, however, and it’s about time we are matched with another division that isn’t stacked, (maybe even two). The key to this season will unquestionably be the games against the NFC North, along with winning the games that should be won. I remember growing up the Lions would win the games they should have lost and would lose the games they should win. They can’t afford for that to happen this season. Here’s a look at my season prediction in terms of simple win/loss:
1 – St. Louis – Win
2 – @ San Francisco – Win
3 – @ Tennessee – Win
4 – Minnesota – Win
6 – @ Philadelphia – Loss
7 – @ Chicago – Loss
8 – Seattle – Win
9 – @ Jacksonville – Win
10 – @ Minnesota – Win
11 – Green Bay – Loss
12 – Houston – Win
13 – Indianapolis – Win
14 – @ Green Bay – Win
15 – @ Arizona – Win
16 – Atlanta – Loss
17 – Chicago – Win
Looking over the schedule it’s hard not to get excited. Maybe it’s because for the first time in a long time, the Lions can realistically beat anybody. I’m sure my opinion will change once the preseason gets rolling and the real action starts, but looking from the outset of training camp, and I think 12-4 is very realistic.

Lions defeated longtime rival Chicago Bear 24 to 13. I want to congratulate the Lions on being 5-0; this is the first time since 1956. This team is really surpassing every doubt anyone throws at them and I am proud of them for that! Also, Detroit has the best loyal fans! (more…)
