The Detroit Lions have been playing their best football in recent weeks and it has led them to their first winning streak in what feels like forever. They’re now 3-6, putting them right on the edge of the playoff picture, which is all you can really ask of this team in mid November. While the cards have played out in the Lions’ favor the past two weeks, it’ll be a tough task for that to continue as the Lions take on one of the league’s hottest teams in the New York Football Giants at Metlife Stadium Sunday.
Bold prediction of the week: Saquon Barkley rushes for <70 yards against the Lions The Lions’ lucky streak has been propelled by their defense, so we’re sticking with them this week. Saquon is squarely in contention for Comeback Player of the Year, finally looking like the man the Giants drafted out of Penn State. Through nine games, Barkley has posted 931 rushing yards and 197 receiving yards.
He hasn’t exactly been a model of consistency, though. In the four games Barkley has eclipsed 100 rushing yards, he’s averaging a shade over 143 yards per game. In his remaining games, He’s averaging half that mark, at just under 72 yards per game. His season has been the epitome of his or miss.

2022 Patriots are the best team I've no faith in whatsoever. Is that a thing? I think it is. lols AFC East, New England is 6th in the playoff standings right now... with Kirk Cousins on deck, what a drunk season.
