rankings:Lions pride on CBS sports continue rise to

The Detroit Lions have won games in 2023 in a number of methods.

In certain games, such as those versus Green Bay and Las Vegas, the defense has been dominant.

Others, such as Tampa Bay, took the lead thanks to the passing game. When playing the Panthers and Raiders, the running game was excellent.

The Lions are still moving up the national power rankings, and observers’ attitudes are beginning to reflect this knowledge.

Those conversions included an early fourth-and-five that resulted in a run play and a fourth-and-2 with 1:47 remaining in the game that ended in a tie.

Detroit was able to run out the clock and kick the game-winning kick as time ran out thanks to their conversion on the final one.

Quarterback Jared Goff remarked following the game, “He’s got big — let’s say confidence.
