7 Teams Detroit Lions fans should root for in Week 13

With the Detroit Lions officially eliminated from playoff contention, it is time to start rooting for a higher pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Following their loss to the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day, the Lions sit at 3-8-1, which currently places them with the seventh-worst record in the NFL.

This means that if the season ended today, the Lions would have the No. 7 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

That being said, if you are hoping for a higher draft pick, you will root for the Lions to lose their remaining four games, coupled with rooting for teams who currently have a worse record to win.

Here is what the NFL standings look like going into Sunday.

Here are the 7 teams you should be rooting for in Week 13.

Jets (4-7) over Bengals (0-11)

Dolphins (2-9) over Eagles (5-6)

Giants (2-9) over Packers (8-3)

Redskins (2-9) over Panthers (5-6)

Buccaneers (4-7) over Jaguars (4-7)

Cardinals (3-7-1) over Rams (6-5)

Broncos (3-8) over Chargers (4-7)

The best-case scenario is that the Lions will move up to No. 6 this week with a shot of eventually moving up to No. 2 by the conclusion of the season.
