The Detroit Lions enter Week 6 with after having picked up an improbable win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week. At 2-3, the Lions are still clinging to hope this season will end at least in a postseason berth, but they face another big game this week to keep those hopes alive. The 3-2 Los Angeles Rams are in town, and as with any NFC matchup, this game hold big implications. A loss would drop the Lions to 2-4, and only 9 percent of 2-4 teams that have reached the postseason. A win would push them to .500 at 3-3. 38 percent of 3-3 teams have made the playoffs in the past.
Both teams could be extremely shorthanded this week as the Lions have already confirmed that Eric Ebron, Theo Riddick, Haloti Ngata and DeAndre Levy are out, while the Rams will be missing Trumaine Johnson, and four other defensive linemen are listed as questionable.
The injuries combined with inconsistent play from both teams make this game extremely hard to predict, but potentially very exciting.
