DETROIT LIONS is back in the news again. This time with the news that the Detroit Lions will play the Oakland Raiders in the opening round of the NFL playoffs. The Lions will be favored to win it all. The game is on Thursday night at 3:00PM ET.
The game is going to be a rematch of last year’s NFC Wildcard game. The Lions won that game, but they were very up and down. This is a game the Lions have been winning against the Raiders all year, and they’re going to have another chance to do so.
The Lions started off well against the Raiders, but have gotten back to where they were playing at. They have a lot of talent, but Oakland has gotten better each week of the season. The only thing we can look forward to is the game being on ESPN and the ESPN announcers saying one thing and then the announcers saying something else and then having to go back and find the first one out.
I don’t know how this one’s going to end, but I’m guessing the Lions will win. I’m sure the team is going to do the best they can with what they have.
The Raiders are the only team to win on the road this season, and they are 2-1 on the road. That’s great for the Raiders, but bad for the Lions. I do think the Lions can win this, especially if both teams can score a lot of points. The Lions have been on a roll lately, and the way they’re playing right now, if they take care of business, that will be a big boost to their confidence.
The Lions have just gone on a winning streak going 3-1 on the road; they have played so well at home lately, that a loss would be devastating. The Raiders have been just 3-5 on the road. They have been playing so well right now that a loss would be devastating. Im sure that if the Lions can get their act together, they can get back on track, and just win.
Im sure the Lions are not worried just yet, they had a 2-3 record on the road on their way to losing to the Eagles last week, and have now won 3 of their last 4 on the road. Im sure that they are still worried though because their road record is 3-5, and this has been one of their worst road performances since coming to Detroit.
The Lions have now lost 12 times in 11 games on the road, and have struggled to win on the road in the last month. The last time they won a road game, they lost at home. A win over the Eagles would be a huge boost for the Lions, but would be tough to sell if they lose to the Eagles.
If the Lions do beat the Eagles, they would be at 1-2 in their last 3 road games. This would mark the first time since 2009 that they’ve won two road games in a row. If this is the case, they’ll be in position to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.
One of the best things about Detroit sports is that their playoff hopes are often tied closely to the state of their team. When they do play each other, it’s because they both have a huge advantage. They have the advantage of a national television contract, which helps them sell seats during their home games, and the advantage of having a very good record. But I think the Lions are most likely to make the playoffs because their road record is good, and they are in position to win the division.
