A look at how the Detroit Lions' future opponents performed in Week 13 of the season.

In Week 13, the Detroit Lions' future opponents combined to go 4-0. Here's a look at how each team performed:

Week 14 - at Eagles (7-5) - beat Cardinals, 24-21

Philadelphia let Arizona get back into this game after holding a 24-7 lead in the second half. However, the Cardinals were unable to complete their comeback. The Eagles forced 3 turnovers en route to their victory, and Nick Foles continued his stellar play by going 21 for 34 for 237 yards, 3 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

Week 15 - vs. Ravens (6-6) - beat Steelers, 22-20

Baltimore was up 13-0 at one point, and the Ravens later had a 19-7 lead in the fourth quarter. Pittsburgh was able to make things interesting, though. In fact, the Steelers scored a touchdown with a little over a minute left in the game, but they were unable to convert the 2-point conversion that would have tied things up. As a result, the Ravens held on to get themselves back into the mix for a playoff spot.

Week 16 - vs. Giants (5-7) - beat Redskins, 24-17

After falling into a 14-0 hole, New York rallied back to tie things up before halftime. The Giants then trailed 17-14 after three quarters before scoring the go-ahead touchdown and adding a field goal for good measure in the fourth quarter. Andre Brown rushed for only 35 yards for the Giants, but he had 2 key touchdowns.

Week 17 - at Vikings (3-8-1) - beat Bears, 23-20 (OT)

Minnesota was down 20-10 midway through the fourth quarter before putting together a rally that included a Blair Walsh field goal with 20 seconds left in regulation to tie things up. In overtime, Walsh missed a field goal after a penalty negated what would have been the game-winning kick. The Bears then had a chance to win it, but Robbie Gould missed a field goal as well. After getting the ball back, Adrian Peterson, who rushed for 211 yards on 35 carries, led the Vikings down the field and set up a 34-yard kick that did win the game.
