2022 Detroit Lions’ offense continues to shine as it sets new franchise record

    The Detroit Lions' offense is really good, historic even. They have been led by their offensive line, a solid two-headed backfield, solid receiving options, and a quarterback that is playing pretty darn smart.

    Why it matters: The Lions are playing some of the best football we've seen in Detroit in a long time.

    • They have won seven of their last nine games
    • They have the chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
    • The offense has reached 4,000 passing and 2,000 rushing yards for the first time ever.
