Detroit Lions Futures Prediction

Lions (+1200) to Win Super Bowl LIX

There’s an argument to be made the Lions should have made the Super Bowl this year.

However, a second half crumble ultimately allowed the 49ers to punch their ticket to Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.

For next year, I’ll turn to the team that’s realistically one unit – a pass defense – away from a complete roster.

During the 2023-24 regular season, Detroit finished seventh in total DVOA – fifth in offensive DVOA, 13th in defensive DVOA, per ftnfantasy.com.

Don’t let those metrics tell the whole story, though. In terms of their defensive output, the Lions led the league in rush defense DVOA but ranked 16th in pass defense.
