NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Here at Pride Of Detroit, thanks to Alex Reno, we don’t quite have a full consensus on who will win on Sunday between the Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans. Ten of 11 staff member have Detroit winning, and most have predicted scores nearing a blowout.

Though last week, most experts around the country didn’t have faith in the Lions against the Colts, many of them have are backing Detroit this week. Let’s take a look at expert picks from around the web.


Nationally, things aren’t so unanimous. Take a look:


Locally: 8-0 Lions

Nationally: 24-8 Lions

So, locally, it appears only our own Alex Reno is predicting a loss, while nationally, the Lions are still a heavy favorite to win in Week 2. In fact, in Yahoo!’s survival pick’em leagues, the Lions are the fourth-most popular choice to win this week.

Personally, this game is giving me a bad feeling, which is why I only chose the Lions to win by three points. But with kickoff just hours away, we shall soon see.
