After a HUGE win in Philly, the Detroit Lions now sit at 2-0-1 and they are STILL UNDEFEATED on the season!
Though the Lions have yet to play their best game (we all hope), they have done what good teams do and have taken advantage of miscues by their opponents.
That being said, the road ahead does not get any easier as the Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings are up next on the schedule.
So, where will the Lions stand after their next three games?
It's time to find out!
Week 4 – Vs. Kansas City Chiefs
After a big win in Philly, the Detroit Lions return home where they will prepare to take on Patrick Mahomes and the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs.
Las Vegas has installed the Chiefs as just a 6.5 point favorite over the Lions and there is no question they are the favorite in this one.
Mahomes has been even better in 2019 than he was in 2018, which seems impossible, and he could have a field day against a Lions defense that has not been able to get to the quarterback so far this season.
Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense should be able to put up some points in this one but they will not be able to keep pace with Mahomes and company.
Chiefs 34 Lions 24
Lions new record 2-1-1
Week 6 – @ Green Bay Packers
In my opinion, the Lions matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football will be much more important than the game against the Chiefs.
Reason being, the Packers are currently 3-0 and I expect them to beat the Eagles at Lambeau when they play this coming Thursday.
If the Lions want to win a division title, they will have to handle their business against the Packers.
That being said, defeating the Packers on Monday Night Football, even coming off a bye week, will be too much for the Lions to handle.
Packers 27 Lions 20
Lions new record 2-2-1
Week 7 – Vs. Minnesota Vikings
Through three games, the Vikings have been a difficult team to get a handle on but you can bet they will be ready to roll when the come into Ford Field to take on the Lions.
If the Lions play as they have in their first three games, it will be VERY difficult to beat the Vikings but by Week 7, I expect Matt Patricia will have things cleaned up.
This will be a MUST WIN game for the Lions if they want to stay in the NFC North race and I believe they will get the job done.
Lions 23 Vikings 20
Lions new record 3-2-1
Nation, how do you think the Lions will fare in their next three games?
