The majority of our staff believes the Lions will win the division on Sunday.

This could potentially be the last predictions we make for the 2016 Detroit Lions season. If that’s the case, our own Andrew Kato is guaranteed to be the co-winner in our staff pick’em challenge with Kyle Yost.

Andrew, along with six other staff members, are picking the Lions to upset the Packers this week and win the division. There are four of us, however, who believe Green Bay is going to prevail and send the Lions home early.

Here’s a look at all of our picks for “Sunday Night Football.”

Andrew Kato (11-4): 27-24 Lions
Joseph Buszek (10-5): 30-27 Lions
Ryan Mathews (10-5): 27-24 Lions
Kyle Yost (10-5): 28-27 Packers
Brian Packey (9-5): 30-24 Lions
Alex Reno (9-6): 38-13 Packers
Chris Lemieux (8-7): 38-31 Lions
Mike Payton (8-7): Lions win
Justin Simon (8-7): 27-24 Lions
Jeremy Reisman (8-7): 27-20 Packers
Kent Lee Platte (6-8): 35-9 Packers

If you think our staff is being a little biased toward the team you cover, just check out SB Nation’s picks for the week. Five of nine SB Nation experts are also picking Detroit to win in the regular season finale.

Now it’s time for you to give us your predictions. Add your score in the comment section below. (At the moment we don’t have the normal prediction widget. Once that gets passed along, I’ll add it to the post.)
