Lions Could Actually win this week

It doesn't come very often when you can be sort of confident that the Lions have a shot at winning. This week they take on the lowly St. Louis Rams, so they have a chance...

That doesn't mean they actually will win. The Rams probably feel exactly the same way as we do about their chances. Their fans might be in need of even more safety products if they fail to win this game as it is likely their only major chance since they want to avoid being the next team to go 0-16.

The Rams are one of, if not the worst teams in an NFL this season that features some seriously bad teams. It may be the worst bottom of the league in history with the Rams and 2 other teams yet to win a game after Week 7. The Lions haven't fared much better, being 1-5. Sadly, being at 1-5 doesn't even put them as one of the bottom 5 teams. There are 2 other teams with 1 win, but they have yet to reach their bye week so they are 1-6.

This game is a battle of futility. Usually when games of this sort happen we see things like a 6-3 final score. Sometimes we get lucky and neither defense shows up so we get to see a high scoring game tat is a bit exciting. Let's hope for all our sakes this is the case tomorrow.
