    This surprised me. Teamrankings and NumberFire both pick the Lions to win. Four of the ESPN "experts" also pick Detroit to beat us (Schefter, Mortensen, Golic & Jaworski).

    I think I'm more surprised by how little love the Patriots are getting against the Falcons.

    And six of the experts are picking Houston over Seattle. With Andre Johnson hurt (he'll be a game time decision to play), I don't see Houston beating Seattle.

    Well, 30-31% is hardly "all of them".

    And?

    A number picked the Bengals, Vikings and Steelers.

    Their predictions don't mean jack.
    They still would not mean jack if they all picked the Bears either.

    They are only giving the nod to Detroit because they have home field. If it were in Chicago, bet they would all pick the Bears.

    I think Lions will win if Peanut can't play. You all see how "easily" Big Ben could get 400 something passing yards. Our defense is weak against the passing game, and this is against Lions and the best WR in the league, add in Reggie Bush ouch.. Our Dline really has to put some pressure on Stafford all the time. I wouldn't be surprised if we lost to the Lions.

    How many yards passing will Stafford get playing at home against the Bears pass defense? Bears will need to be at least +2 on turnovers to beat them. That's possible, but I'm not confident about this game.
