The revamped Lions are looking to make sizable gains this upcoming season. My prediction is they trade games the first quarter of the season before falling to 2-4 in a loss to Dallas. Things will start to click for the young team and they will eventually pull even at 7-7 against the Jets and end the season just outside the playoffs with a season finale loss to the Packers. While not peaking early enough to make the playoffs, young talent proves things are headed in the right direction and the Lions will finish tied for second in the division, splitting games with Minnesota and edging out the Bears who bring up last place in the NFC North. The Packers claim the division… again.
