The ESPN panel of experts all agree that the Lions will win this week. That makes two consecutive weeks the panel has been unanimous as far as the Lions are concerned and means Eric Allen’s pick in week one remains the only expert panel prediction to go against the Lions.
AccuScore’s 10,000 simulations agree that the Lions are favorites but it might not be the slam dunk that the unanimous panel of expert predictions suggest. AccuScore has the Lions as 51% to 48% favorites.
ESPN’s Madden 12 simulation resulted in a more comfortable game for the Lions. Their simulation recap reads as follows:
Jahvid Best blazes down the field for two touchdowns and Matthew Stafford continues to put up big numbers (312 yards passing, two touchdowns) as the Detroit Lions beat the Minnesota Vikings 31-17. Donovan McNabb was picked off two times in the loss for Minnesota.
