Why the Detroit Lions could be sitting pretty by the time our Thanksgiving dinner is digested

The Detroit Lions managed to crap the bed not once, but twice to start off the 2020 season yet on Sunday, they showed they still have a pulse as they went into Arizona and defeated a solid Cardinals team 26-23 to give us some hope.

As I looked at the Lions upcoming scheduled I realized that there are quite a few winnable games between now and Thanksgiving Day. Now, don’t get me wrong. Those teams on the Lions schedule are also looking at those games as being winnable for them, so nothing is a guarantee.

That being said, here is what the Lions upcoming schedule looks like.

Week 4 – vs. New Orleans

Week 5 – BYE

Week 6 – @ Jacksonville

Week 7 @ Atlanta

Week 8 vs. Indianapolis

Week 9 @ Minnesota

Week 10 vs. Washington

Week 11 @ Carolina

Week 12 (Thanksgiving) vs. Houston

Each and every one of those games from Week 4 through Week is winnable and I would not be surprised if the Lions can go 6-2 over that stretch, despite having one of the worst head coaches and general managers in the NFL.

If the Lions were to go 6-2 over that stretch, they would be sitting at 7-4 with games against the Bears (away), Packers (home), Titans (away), Buccaneers (home), and Vikings (home) remaining on the schedule to close out the season.

All of that being said, there is no question about it that the Lions could go out and lose to the Saints on Sunday and completely kill any momentum they had. But, when you take a close look at who the Lions play over the next two months or so, it’s not out completely far-fetched to think they can make things interesting.

Nation, do you believe the Lions will put themselves into contention by the end of the day on Thanksgiving?
