Detroit Lions Season Preview

The Detroit Lions finished the 2021 season with a 3-13-1 record, which was good for fourth place in the NFC North and the second-worst record in the league. They added a lot of talent in the offseason and will be hoping to be more competitive this season.

Detroit averaged 19.1 points per game last season, which was 25th in the league. They gave up 27.5 points per game, which was 31st.
Jared Goff completed 67.2 percent of his passes for 3,245 yards, 19 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. D’Andre Swift led the team with 617

rushing yards and five touchdowns, while Amon-Ra St. Brown led the team with 912 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
The Lions added downfield threat in DJ Chark Jr. in free agency. And then they selected former Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams with the 12th pick in the draft. Giving Goff more weapons this season.

The Lions focused on improving their defense in the offseason, using six of their eight draft picks on defensive players, led by former Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, who was selected number two overall.

With players like Tracy Walker III, Alex Anzalone, and Romeo Okwara, coming back next season. Detroit’s defense will be significantly better than it was last season, which will lead to more wins for the Lions.

With the other talented teams in their division, Detroit’s best-case scenario is a third-place finish in the NFC North. But they will be better than they were last season. With the team still rebuilding, oddmakers don’t have a lot of confidence in them. Which is why Super Bowl 2023 predictions have their odds of winning the big game at +1000, which is tied for the worst in the league.
