FanSided NFL has released their preseason top 25 poll and the Detroit Lions check in at number 22. The FanSided NFL Top 25 is a weekly poll taken from a group of
editors from within the FanSided Network, this site’s parent company.

The NFC North was well represented with the Green Bay Packers fifth, the Minnesota Vikings 13th and the Chicago Bears 15th.

Here is the full preseason top 25:

Rank Team (1st Place Votes) Points
1 Denver Broncos (3) 232
2 Seattle Seahawks (4) 230
3 San Francisco 49ers (2) 227
4 Atlanta Falcons 215
5 Green Bay Packers 205
6 Houston Texans 194
7 Baltimore Ravens 180
8 New England Patriots 170
9 Cincinnati Bengals 163
10 Washington Redskins 149
11 Indianapolis Colts 148
12 New York Giants 141
13 Minnesota Vikings (1) 122
14 New Orleans Saints 118
15 Chicago Bears 115
16 St. Louis Rams 101
17 Pittsburgh Steelers 99
18 Dallas Cowboys 82
19 Miami Dolphins 68
20 Carolina Panthers 55
21 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 54
22 Detroit Lions 46
23 San Diego Chargers 35
24 Kansas City Chiefs 30
25 Arizona Cardinals 24

Also receiving votes were the Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders were the only teams to not receive a single top 25 vote.

What do you think, Lions fans? I have a feeling most of you will say 22 is a bit too low…
