With no game, it was a long, slow Sunday for Lions fans.
Detroit’s NFC North rivals Minnesota and Green Bay each won Sunday, but the Lions remain 1.5 games ahead of the Vikings for first place and remain big favorites to win the division at Michigan sportsbooks.
Multiple Lions are in the running for post-season honors. DraftKings has Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs third to win Offensive Rookie of the Year and Lions star defensive end Aidan Hutchinson fourth in the Defensive Player of the Year voting. Dan Campbell remains the strong favorite at Caesars to win the Coach of the Year award.
Hopefully, the bye hasn’t stopped the Lions momentum. They’ve won five out of their last six games. They should be rested and ready for the second half of the season.
