Lions are a sucky, weird 2-2-1 to enter week 7 of the season. Losing in week 5, that took us a big step backwards, they go into Week 7 needing, not wanting to, to beat Minny at home on Sunday.
Currently, they are at a 26% probability to make the playoffs. Week 2 is was 65%. And, last Monday is was 43% chance in making the cut so we have to keep winning! We dropped 29% points since week 2……
• If we win against Minny, it goes up to 31%
• If we lose, it goes to 17% with a 14% point swing?!
As the whole league sits today, if we win 8 of the 11 remaining games (73%), we go 10-5-1 and will have a 73% chance of making the playoffs. Before the shitstrom in GB, we were at 83% to make it and no help needed. Now, we must have other teams currently ahead of us to lose more than us; we now
need help to cinch any spot.
That is why I was saying this last game we a must win.
To go another way, due to this last loss to GB, if we even go 12-3-1 (only a single loss the rest of the way) we are at 99% to make it but with help only. We cant make it on our own without going
undefeated the rest of the way….
We only go 9-6-1 and we fail.
We are currently projected to end the season at 8-7-1 so we have to beat the odds now as well as the refs and other teams to lose imo.
We sit as the projected 11th overall (NFC) and have to jump Hawks, Minny, Bears, Panthers, and Eagles to get a WC birth. This is projected not realtime standing.
We must win and win a lot now and have other team fail as well.
Even if we go 3-0 the next few games, if the current seeds match that nothing changes… this GB loss was fluking huge.
