Lions-Rams staff predictions: We’re mostly picking the Lions in a low-scoring affair

Who are you picking this week?

NFL: Detroit Lions at St. Louis Rams Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

For the sixth week in a row, there is a heavy consensus among the Pride Of Detroit’s staff about the Detroit Lions game this week. However, that hasn’t really meant much so far, as all but two of our staffers have a losing record when picking the winner of the Lions game.

The bad news is that the consensus this week is heavily in Detroit’s favor. Since we’ve mostly been wrong, that may not be as good as it sounds. That being said, Brian Packey and Joseph Buszek, our two leading pickers, are both taking the Lions this week. In fact, the only staffer picking the Rams this week is Kent.

Here’s a look at all of our picks this week:

Joseph Buszek (3-2): 20-9 Lions
Brian Packey (3-2): 34-30 Lions
Alex Reno (2-3): 24-13 Lions
Justin Simon (2-3): 17-14 Lions
Kyle Yost (2-3): 23-21 Lions
Ryan Mathews (2-3): 21-13 Lions
Andrew Kato (2-3): 20-16 Lions
Chris Lemieux (2-3): 4-1 Lions
Mike Payton (2-3): Lions win
Jeremy Reisman (2-3): 13-9 Lions
Kent Lee Platte (1-3): 16-10 Rams
