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.
