The Ravens (6-5), too, are working their way to a playoff berth this season. In the less competitive AFC, the Ravens actually hold the six seed despite their mediocre record. There’s little chance that they catch the 9-2 Steelers at this point, but the wild card spots are there for the taking.
The Lions, on the other hand, are going to need some help. Thankfully, they’ll get some this week regardless of the results. The Panthers and Saints will play on Sunday, as will the Falcons and Ravens. There will be losses handed out to teams in current playoff spots in the NFC, and the Lions will need to take advantage by handing the Ravens a loss of their own.
So watch with us as the Lions attempt to move to 7-5 on the year and head into Week 14 with a full steam ahead.
