Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

10. Detroit Lions (LW: 11)

They absolutely could not afford a home loss to the Bears and, despite a slow start, delivered when asked. The Lions finally broke their slump of seven consecutive quarters without a touchdown by racking up four on Thanksgiving Day. Back in the win column, the Lions have a chance to enter their Week 17 matchup against the Packers with the division on the line. Their next three games, leading into said matchup, are all against teams with losing records.
