Can you believe we are already in Week 18 of the 2021 NFL season?!?!
Unfortunately, the Detroit Lions have been out of playoff contention for a very long time and we have been talking more about their 2022 NFL Draft position than anything else.
That being said, let’s reveal the teams that Lions’ fans should be rooting for in Week 18 to improve both the Lions’ draft position and the Los Angeles Rams draft position (since we have their first-round pick)
Teams to root for to help improve the Lions first-round pick
Jaguars (2-14) over Colts (9-7)
Packers (13-3) over Lions (2-13-1) (ok, we cannot really root for the Packers but…)
Note: If the Lions lose and the Jaguars win today and the Lions would move back into the No. 1 slot in the 2022 NFL Draft order
Teams to root for to help improve the Rams first-round pick
49ers (9-7) over Rams (12-4)
Tennessee (11-5) over Houston (4-12)
Arizona (11-5) over Seattle (6-10)
Tampa Bay (12-4) over Carolina (5-11)
Note: The Rams’ final NFL Draft position will be determined when they are eliminated from the NFL Playoffs.
Enjoy the games!
