Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Detroit Lions fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.


In this week’s SB Nation Reacts survey, we are asking fans two questions:

  1. Are you confident the Lions are headed in the right direction? (weekly poll)
  2. What is the most likely outcome for the Lions vs. Saints?

With regards to the first survey question, this is a question that we will ask weekly and track the results throughout the season. Here are the results we have seen so far:

After a comeback win over the Bears in Week 11, Lions fans' confidence dipped a tick. And now, following a loss to the Packers on Thanksgiving Day, it’s time for fans to vote again on how confident they are in the direction of the Lions franchise.

For the second question in the survey, how big of a threat do you think the New Orleans Saints will be in Week 13? The Saints (5-6) have a losing record, yet they are still tied for first place in the NFC South with the Falcons. In DVOA, the Saints are slightly above average on defense (13th) and slightly below average on offense (20th). They have a top-10 rushing offense, and a near-top-10 passing defense, while their weak spots are stopping the run and scoring touchdowns.

Be sure to share your prediction for What is the most likely outcome for the Lions vs. Saints? in the comments, and vote in the SB Nation Reacts surveys below. Results from the Reacts surveys will be posted later this week and make sure to check out DraftKings Sportsbook, the official sportsbook partner of SB Nation.
