Our staff makes their predictions for the Lions’ Week 2 matchup.

Last week wasn’t a good week for anyone. The Detroit Lions were embarrassed and the Pride of Detroit staff was shut out in their Week 1 predictions.

Pending a tie, that’s not going to happen again. The staff is pretty split on what will happen Sunday afternoon between the Lions and the San Francisco 49ers. Though after Monday night’s disaster, most are jumping ship on the Lions and picking the 49ers this week. Take a look.

Hamza Baccouche (0-1): 34-31 49ers
Kent Lee Platte (0-1): 45-12 49ers
Justin Simon (0-1) : 24-21 49ers
Kyle Yost (0-1): 28-24 49ers
John Whiticar (0-1): 33-20 49ers
Andrew Kato (0-1): 27-16 49ers
Chris Perfett (0-1): 26-4 49ers
Jeremy Reisman (0-1): 27-20 49ers
Kellie Rowe (0-1): 30-21 49ers
Jerry Mallory (0-1): 23-20 Lions
Mansur Shaheen (0-1): 30-24 Lions
Mike Payton (0-1): 28-14 Lions
Levi Blue (0-1): 17-13 Lions
Alex Reno (0-1) : 24-21 Lions
Ryan Mathews (0-1): 31-28 Lions
FanPulse (0-1): Lions by 1

For those that don’t feel like counting it up that’s nine of us picking San Francisco with six of us (seven, if you include the fans) sticking with the Lions.

The current line on the game is all the way up to 49ers by 6.5, up well from the 3.5-point line the game opened with on Sunday night.
