Gameday is here and with it comes a desperate effort from the Detroit Lions to regrab control of their 2016 season. At 1-3, the Lions are facing the possibility of another season gone before Halloween. According to, only 5 percent of teams that started 1-4 have ended up making the playoffs, while 22 percent of 2-3 teams have made the postseason. Those are still pretty long odds, but if the Lions want to leave a glimmer of hope for this year, they’ll need to upset the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles.
