Will the Detroit Lions start the 2013 season with a win? We’ll find out for sure on Sunday but optimism seems to be running high – in and out of Detroit.

ESPN is back with their panel of experts for another year of picks and this year’s panel of 13 is very high on the Lions’ chances to beat the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Of the 13, only Merril Hoge sees the Vikings beating the Lions.

Only the Patriots (vs. Buffalo), Buccaneers (vs. the Jets) and 49ers (vs. Green Bay) were unanimously selections this week.
