Our staff makes their picks and score predictions for Detroit Lions vs. New York Jets in Week 15.

The Detroit Lions have gone streaking, and it’s the most exciting time to be a fan in quite some time. Not only is the team in the midst of an improbable playoff run, but they’re also an extremely young team, meaning this could just be the beginning for this Lions franchise. Oh, and on top of that, thanks to the struggles of the Los Angeles Rams, the Lions may be looking at a top-five pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, too!

It’s clear this optimism has infiltrated Pride of Detroit heavily, because for the second week in a row, the majority of the staff is picking the Lions to beat a team with a winning record. Last week, 10 out of 12 correctly picked the Lions to beat the Vikings. This week, 11 out of 12 are predicting the Lions to come out victorious.

The New York Jets present an interesting challenge, however. Detroit has been riding high off the heels of their offense, which has been averaging 32.2 points over the past five games. However, the Jets have only allowed 30 points once in the entire season. Detroit is 1-5 in games where they fail to score at least 30 points this season, yet every single prediction of a Lions win from our staff has the Lions scoring short of that 30-point benchmark.

Check out our picks below:

Kellie Rowe (11-2): Lions win
Jerry Mallory (9-4): 20-16 Lions
Hamza Baccouche (9-4): 21-20 Lions
Ryan Mathews (8-5): 20-14 Lions
Morgan Cannon (8-5): 20-16 Lions
Jeremy Reisman (8-5): 17-13 Lions
John Whiticar (8-5): 27-17 Lions
Erik Schlitt (8-5): 25-20 Lions
Kyle Yost (7-6): 28-27 Lions
Mike Payton (7-6): 24-21 Lions
Alex Reno (6-7): 17-14 Lions
Chris Perfett (0-0-13): 33-33 Tie
