The New Orleans Saints look to be unstoppable right now, but the Detroit Lions will be looking to get it back into gear if they want to make a push for the playoffs. Who do the experts think will win?
Peter King of Sports Illustrated likes the Saints to continue their hot streak:
Detroit Lions (7-4) at New Orleans Saints (8-3)
It's not the loss of Ndamukong Suh that has me most worried about the Lions right now. It's the seven picks in the last eight quarters by Matthew Stafford.
No one at ESPN has any faith in the Lions to beat the Saints.
Peter Schrager of Fox Sports likes the Saints to win big over the Lions:
Detroit at New Orleans: The Saints are sizzling, the Lions will be without the services of Mr. Suh, and the Mercedez Benz Lexus December to Remember Prius iPad Superdome will be rocking. Stafford and Co. don't stand a chance. Drew Brees will eat that awful Lions secondary alive. Like the Bills, the Lions' playoff berth seemed all but certain just four weeks ago. Now? The guy they took such pleasure mocking - Mr. Tebow - might have a better shot at playing January football. The lesson, as always? Don't ever mock Tim Tebow. Oh, and don't viciously stomp on the leg of a defenseless opponent, either.
The Pick: Saints 37, Lions 23
