LOOK: Detroit Lions Week 9 Rooting Guide
The Detroit Lions (3-4) have Sunday afternoon off this week as they make their final preparations for their Monday Night Football matchup against the hated Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. But, that does not mean you have to wait until tomorrow to care about what’s happening in the NFL today. If the Lions want to make a run at the NFL Playoffs, they will likely need some help from around the league.
So, in case you are not sure about which teams to root for this week, we have you covered.
Ignore the AFC vs. AFC Matchups
Obviously, when it comes to the Detroit Lions making the playoffs or not making the playoffs, AFC vs. AFC matchups play absolutely zero role. So, feel free to ignore the following games this week.
Buffalo @ New York Jets (Already completed on Thursday night)
Indianapolis @ Houston
Cincinnati @ Jacksonville
Baltimore @ Tennessee
Oakland @ Miami
AFC over NFC, every time
If the Lions can find a way to win the NFC North, they will automatically clinch a home playoff game. That being said, if they come up just short in the North, they will earn a Wild Card spot in the NFC, which means having a better record than the other NFC teams that did not win their division. So, make sure to root for the AFC over the NFC today, including these matchups.
Denver over Philadelphia
Kansas City over Dallas
