Detroit Lions 2006 NFL Predictions

Week 1
Sep 10
Seattle Loss Projected – A win would certainly be the upset of the week, or better. But the odds won’t be in the Lions favor versus the reigning NFC champs.
Week 2
Sep 17
@Chicago Loss Projected – Could be swept by the Bears again as Chicago’s defense surrendered 143 fewer points in 2005 compared to Detroit’s defense.
Week 3
Sep 24
Green Bay Win Projected – Good chance for a win versus a quarterback who struggles indoors.
Week 4
Oct 1
@St. Louis Loss Projected – Likely to join the many teams who leave St. Louis with an “L”.
Week 5
Oct 8
@Minnesota Loss Projected – Would like to avoid being swept again. Easier said than done. But certainly not impossible.
Week 6
Oct 15
Buffalo Win Projected – One of the more winnable home games versus a .312 finisher from 2005, who will be out of their element indoors at Ford Field.
Week 7
Oct 22
@N.Y. Jets Loss Projected – A maximum effort before the bye, but versus a team that’s likely to be very hungry for a home win of their own.
Week 8
Oct 29
BYE 2-5 at the bye if these preseason predictions for the 2006 Detroit Lions prove correct.
Week 9
Nov 5
Atlanta Loss Projected – Remember Thanksgiving last year?
Week 10
Nov 12
San Francisco Win Projected – Don’t want to lose this one unless the next draft has become a mid season priority.
Week 11
Nov 19
@Arizona Loss Projected – Getting a road win in Arizona may not be easy as the Lions have struggled on the road.
Week 12
Nov 23
Miami Loss Projected – The Dolphins were one of 2005’s strong finishers. Add in Culpepper and odds won’t favor a Thanksgiving day victory for the Lions in this season’s Thursday football affair at Ford Field. The Dolphins will be out of their element in the dome. But Culpepper has plenty of experience indoors and could prove to be the difference.
Week 13
Dec 3
@New England Loss Projected – Facing top team, outdoors in the cold. Not a good recipe for a road win.
Week 14
Dec 10
Minnesota Loss Projected – Likely playing to avoid another sweep at the hands of the Vikings.
Week 15
Dec 17
@Green Bay Loss Projected – Favre, December, Lambeau. Perhaps a win if the Packers have made a quarterback switch.
Week 16
Dec 24
Chicago Loss Projected – There might not be much to play for other than draft positioning.
Week 17
Dec 31
@Dallas Loss Projected – Likely to be at opposite ends of the spectrum.
