NFL Week 16 Odds, Picks & Predictions: Lions vs. Panthers
Two weeks ago the Panthers ran for 223 yards on 46 carries. They decimated the Seattle defense and won that game outright. Last week they ran the ball 16 times for 21 yards against the Steelers and lost. The fact is that they cannot rely on Sam Darnold to win them games.
This game comes down to the Lions ability to stop the run. Over the season, they are a bottom third team in this category allowing 133 rushing yards per game. However, over their last 3 games, a mere 56 yards is all they have been allowing per game. This is a new, revitalized, energetic detroit defense that is fun to watch. Look for them to continue their success and force Darnold to throw the ball.
