So, I am going to bring this back on the new forum and try to do it each week again….
Lions are a weird 0-0-1 to start the season. They go into week 2 wanting to win their home opener and technically stay undefeated at 1-0-1.
Currently, they are at a 65% probability to not make the playoffs.
- If we win, it drops to 62%
- If we loose, it goes to 70%
As the whole league sits today, If we win 10 of the 15 remaining games (67%), we go 10-5-1 and will have a 19% chance of no making the playoffs or have an 81% chance to clinch!
We only win 8 of the 15 (53%) we will have an 84% chance of no playoffs. Crazy, that going into just the 2nd game of the season… the swing is so great +/- just 2 games!
If we go on an indefinite winning streak, we control our own destiny to win the division meaning we still control our own path without needing help from other teams. We need losses already from other teams to get a higher seed.
We are currently projected to end the season as the 9th seed. We need to jump over the Eagles, Rams and 49rs to get to the projected 6th seed.
Currently, 3- 12 - 1 would officially eliminate us mathematically from the playoff race completely! So, there is hope!!
