If you were hoping for an 0-16 season (I know I am), this is going to be a game that there is a slight chance they can win. The Houston Texans aren't exactly a great team. In fact, Houston is the franchise that is vying for the crown of the worst team in the NFL over the Millen era. Fortunately, Millen was able to keep the Lions as the worst team in the NFL over his tenure. The Texans as an expansion team do have a better record than the Lions since they have come into the league. Prompting some very funny t-shirts in the last several years. We need some new slogans to come up with I guess. Shouldn't be hard with the Fords still owning the team.
The Lions last week got robbed. You can't deny this, but we are still happy they got the loss. We are looking for a record season here if you hadn't noticed. The Lions looked very good defensively last week, however. This may be their best chance to pick up a win the rest of the way. Their schedule is not friendly. In fact it may be one of, if not the hardest schedules in the league.
Think we can win any of these games?

We already lost our chances with home games vs. division foes. I find it hard to believe we win on the road against any of them. The rest of the non-division games are tough. 0-16 is really a possibility.
