Power Rankings
The first year without Calvin Johnson will be interesting in terms of how it changes the dynamic of the offense. They added a tackle in Taylor Decker in the first round, maybe an indication of a move to the run game.
They saw Calvin Johnson retire, which is a big hit. Signing Marvin Jones will help. They are third best in the division right now.
With Calvin Johnson likely retiring, they have a big hole on offense. They have to get a receiver to stretch the defense.
They won six of their last eight to turn things around. They went back to their roots on offense.
Jim Bob Cooter has saved the day. He just might have saved Jim Caldwell's job.
They have a lot to build on with the offense for 2016. There are also some young, talented players on defense. They could bounce back.
What happened to the resurgent Lions against the Rams? Was it a Hail Mary hangover?
They've had two brutal losses this season. If not for those, they'd be in the playoff race.
They are on a roll. The move to Jim Bob Cooter as offensive coordinator has paid off.
They've won two consecutive games and the defense is much improved. We'll see what happens this week against the Eagles on Thanksgiving Day.
