I’ve got a funny feeling about this one. After both teams exceeded expectations last week (notice how the Jaguars still lost), the two will meet down in Florida, a state where the Lions are just 15-20 all-time. Jacksonville did not let Green Bay walk all over them last week, and will not allow Detroit to do it either. However the Jaguars are 0-3 against the NFC North this year and 5-14 against the NFC since 2008. The numbers just don’t add up. I do think Detroit will be able to pick this one up and fight their way back to .500, but it will not be as easy as most people think.
Detroit 27, Jacksonville 24
