Detroit Lions: Predicting Week 12 – Week 18 of the 2022 season


Share post:

Don't look now but for the first time in five years, our Detroit Lions have won back-to-back-to-back games. Following Sunday's 31-18 win over the New York Giants, the Lions are now 4-6 on the season, and they are suddenly in the NFL Playoff conversation. Now that the Lions are on a three-game winning streak, the question is, how many wins can they accumulate before the end of the 2022 regular season? It all starts with a huge game against the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving Day.

How many more games will the Detroit Lions win in 2022?

Here is a look at the reminder of the schedule for the Detroit Lions, along with my predicted result for each game.

Nov. 24
Buffalo BillsFord Field, Detroit, MI12:30pm ETCBSLose 34-20 (4-7)
Dec. 4
Jacksonville JaguarsFord Field, Detroit, MI1:00pm ETFOXWin 30-20 (5-7)
Dec. 11
Minnesota VikingsFord Field, Detroit, MI1:00pm ETFOXLose 30-27 (5-8)
Dec. 18
at New York JetsMetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ1:00pm ETFOXWin 24-20 (6-8)
Dec. 24
at Carolina PanthersBank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC1:00pm ETFOXWin 27-23 (7-8)
Jan. 1
Chicago BearsFord Field, Detroit, MI1:00pm ETFOXWin 27-20 (8-8)
Jan. 8
at Green Bay PackersLambeau Field, Green Bay, WITime TBA ETor Sat., Jan. 7Lose 31-27 (8-9)

As you can see, I have the Lions going into a Week 18 matchup against the Green Bay Packers with an 8-8 record. With a win, the Lions would likely get into the playoffs, while a loss would knock them out.

Aaron Rodgers will be looking for revenge from earlier in the season, and, unfortunately, I think he will get it.

Nation, what do you think the Lions' record will be by the end of the season?
