Pre­dic­tions

Justin Rogers: It’s un­for­tu­nate the Lions are play­ing a game in early De­cem­ber where they stand to gain more by los­ing than win­ning. But the play­ers and coach­ing staff aren’t think­ing about draft po­si­tion, and this is one week where the Lions might have more healthy tal­ent, so we’re re­luc­tantly tak­ing them to snap a 25-year drought in Ari­zona. Lions, 18-16

John Niyo: The Lions’ in­jury woes can’t quite match Ari­zona’s right now, as the Car­di­nals don’t have a sin­gle pro­jected starter from train­ing camp left on their of­fen­sive line. That only makes things harder on a rookie quar­ter­back, Josh Rosen. And the Lions should be able to take ad­van­tage. Lions, 23-20

Bob Wo­jnowski: The Car­di­nals have the worst of­fense in the league, a bat­tered of­fen­sive line and a rookie quar­ter­back in Josh Rosen. So of course they beat Green Bay last week and got Mike McCarthy fired. Ah, the NFL. The Lions will strug­gle against Ari­zona’s de­fense, and they al­ways strug­gle in Ari­zona, but as long as Matthew Stafford avoids turnovers (stop me if you’ve heard this be­fore), they should have just enough of­fense to pull it out. Lions, 20-16
