No matter how you slice it, it has been a long season for the Detroit Lions and their fans. Sitting at 5-10, the only real question remaining is, how high it will Lions select in the 2019 NFL Draft?
Though there have not been many positives this season, there is something positive that could come out of the lions final game this weekend against the Green Bay Packers.
So far in 2018, the Lions have had six games in which they did not turn over the ball a single time. That number ties the franchise record of games in a season without a single turnover.
If the Lions go turnover-free against the Packers this coming Sunday, they would set a franchise record with seven games without a single turnover.
The @Lions have not committed a turnover in six games this season, tying the single-season franchise record set in 2016 and in 1972.

With a record like that in reach, you would assume the team would also be in playoff contention but as we know, that is not the case.
