Why the Detroit Lions Can Succeed in 2023

The Lions have never won a championship in the Super Bowl era, and their last playoff appearance in 2016 saw them go out in a 26-6 defeat to Seattle Sounders. Needless to say, being a Lions fan hasn’t brought a whole lot of joy in recent years. Despite this, some experts are picking them to go all the way this season. So what exactly has changed, and can Detroit finally bring home the Super Bowl?

The NFL is one of the toughest and most competitive sports leagues, with the best athletes from around the world. It’s also the biggest and most popular competition in the US, attracting millions of viewers and billions of dollars of bets at NFL betting sites. In this article, you’ll find out exactly why the Detroit Lions can succeed at Super Bowl 58.

A Top Offense

The Lions have managed to put together an incredibly strong offense, and one that is more than capable of reaching the Super Bowl.  Last season it got off to a slow start, with Jared Goff struggling to get going. However, the former Rams Super Bowl-winning quarterback soon turned things around and showed why the team was right to stand by him.

This season, Goff will have running back Jahmyr Gibbs, the number 12 draft pick, as well as tight end Sam LaPorta to give him more options on offense. In addition, wide receiver Jameson Williams will be returning from his six-game suspension, and a top offensive line will mean that the Lions’ defense is firing on all cylinders. Already we’ve seen this in action as the team has gone 4-1 in the first five weeks while scoring an average of 29.6 points per game.

As well as increasing production, this Lions’ offense also looks more diverse than ever. There’s a good combination of effective passing, rushing, and running the ball, keeping opposition defenses guessing and avoiding becoming too predictable.

Improved Defense

While offense helps to win games, championships are won on defense. It wouldn’t be hyperbole to say that this is the best Detroit defense since the 2014 side that reached the playoffs. It may not be the best defense in the league, but it’s easily in the top fifteen. It’s an impressive turnaround after having one of the worst defensive records in the league in 2022.

Defensive end Aiden Hutchinson was the no.1 pick for the Lions in 2021, and while he got off to a slow start, he now looks every bit the player that fans were hoping for. Safety Kerby Joseph is another key player going into his second season for the Lions and looks to be progressing well and making the defense stronger.

The Lions’ defense held the Chiefs to 20 points in the season opener. While they might have been without Travis Kelce, they still had the best quarterback on the planet in great form. They followed that up by holding two of their other three opponents to 20 or below, showing just how effective this defense can be.

Belief

One of the most underrated aspects of what makes a winning team is belief. It doesn’t matter how much talent a roster has; if there’s no belief that they’ll win, they’ll crumble under pressure. In Detroit, the Lions are certainly not favored or expected to win. Despite this, there’s a real belief from the fans and the team that they can get things done.

The NFC North is there for the taking, with the Green Bay Packers looking weaker than ever. It will be difficult to beat the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers, but anything is possible when this team reaches the playoffs.
