The Detroit Lions took care of business on Sunday against the New York Giants, earning their third victory of the year with a 31-26 triumph to improve their record to 3-3-1.

And while many commentators and analysts believe that a postseason appearance is a longshot, one commentator is taking a different approach.

Fox Sports’ Charles Davis pointed out the team’s favorable schedule and believes they could make a run.

“They do have a schedule that is favorable coming up. Going to Oakland, going to Chicago. The Chicago game looked daunting a month ago. It doesn’t look as daunting now, and it’s in the division,” Davis said. “I don’t think they’re quite a playoff team, but they win the next two, come home for Dallas? That could change.”

Of course, the offense will have to be a factor in order for such a run to take place.

“Matthew Stafford’s in a heck of a groove right now throwing the football. He’s never had a big running game, what he calls the today’s offense status quo, ‘I’m going to throw the football.’ He’s had some nice help, Kenny Golladay really jumped up,” he said. “But overall, this Lions defense, they need Damon Harrison to play full out inside and discourage some teams from running the football, because that’s been part of their Achilles heel.”
