Detroit Lions 2020 Preview and Season Win Total Pick

September 1, 2020
Matt Patricia on the hot seat

The Lions are one of those teams that could have been great many times over the years dating back to the Barry Sanders era. They get great players and have loyal fans but can’t seem to string together any real success long term.

The 2020 team looks just like many years past. They have some weapons and some high hopes but expectations from the sports media isn’t so lofty.

On offense the O Line has been somewhat revamped and should be able to open some holes for young running backs D’Andre Swift and Kerryon Johnson. Matt Stafford should be completing plenty of passing again in 2020 to WR Kednny Golladay. The receiver blew up last year for over 1000 yards and 11 TDs.

The D line has been one of the worst in football and there is no sign of change there. The defense as a whole allowed 423 points last season, one of the worst in the league, on their way to a 3-12-1 record. Head Coach Matt Patricia is definitely on the hot seat. If these Lions don’t make the playoffs you can bet that Patricia will be heading out the door for good.

2020 Detroit Lions Total Wins Over Under

Over 6.5 wins -170
Under 6.5 wins +140

Pick: I don’t really see this team being that great. I mean there is always a chance that they put it all together and play well but odds are they will have another clunker of a season. If I had to bet this total I would go Under.
