This one is going to be messy.  Huge blizzard taking place, probably favors the team who makes fewer mistakes (ie: not the Lions).

...you just saw what I was talking about.  The conditions favored the offense.  In these icy conditions, the defense can't adjust once the offensive player makes a cut.The fact that the Lions offense couldn't take advantage is what people should be upset about, not that the defense folded.

WIth very few exceptions, dome teams are soft on the road in bad late-season weather. That doesn't automatically kill you if you win your early season road games in good weather and dominate at home so that you get some home-field advantage in the playoffs.

But then we're talking about the Lions here.

I be the Lions lose at home to the Ravens, they may beat the Giants at home but then lose the final game on the road to the Vikings.

I see them finishing 7-9 and Green bay winning the division at 8-7-1.

Schwartz is not a great coach and probably will get canned at the end of the season. I'm not sure who will coach the Lion's? It is the grave yard for NFL coaches.
