Writers are divided on how big a leap they take

Free Press sports columnists make their predictions on how many wins the Detroit Lions manage in 2022, and whether they will qualify for the NFL playoffs:

Carlos Monarrez: 6-11

The reason: In year 2 of reconstruction, the Lions will make modest progress under a new offensive coordinator and a defense that will be better up front but very suspect on defense.

Lions MVP: DJ chark

Lions running back leader: D’Andre Swift

Leading Lions receiver: DJ chark

Jared Goff TD/INT: 9/22

CARLOS MONARREZ:Don’t expect too much from Lions in Dan Campbell’s Year 2, Brad Holmes rebuild

Where the Lions’ offense will rank: 16

Where the Lions defense will qualify: 25

NFC Division Winners: Philadelphia, Green Bay, Tampa Bay, LA Rams

NFC wildcards: Dallas, San Francisco, New Orleans

NFC Title Game: Green Bay over LA Rams

AFC division winners: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, LA Chargers

AFC Wild Cards: Kansas City, Baltimore, Denver

AFC title game: Buffalo over LA Chargers

Super Bowl: Buffalo over Green Bay

DAVE BIRKET:Detroit Lions record 2022 prediction: Will they challenge for the NFL playoff wild card?

Jeff Seidel: 7-10

Detroit Lions wide receiver DJ Chark makes a catch during a joint practice with the Indianapolis Colts at the NFL football training camp in Westfield, Ind., Thursday, Aug. 18, 2022.

The reason: Brad Holmes is improving the roster and Dan Campbell is the right person for this team. But it has finished last in the division for four years in a row. Expecting a significant jump from a draft and minimal free-agent pickups doesn’t seem realistic. We will see an improvement, but not a massive jump.

Lions MVP: jared goff

Lions running back leader: D’Andre Swift

Leading Lions receiver: Amon-Ra St. Brown

Jared Goff TD/INT: 10/22

Where the Lions’ offense will rank: 17

Where the Lions defense will qualify: 25

NFC Division Winners: LA Rams, Green Bay, Tampa Bay, Philadelphia

NFC wildcards: New Orleans, Arizona, Minnesota

NFC Title Game: Green Bay over LA Rams

AFC division winners: Kansas City, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Buffalo

AFC Wild Cards: Denver, LA Chargers, Cincinnati

AFC title game: Buffalo over Kansas City

Super Bowl: Buffalo over Green Bay

NFL POWER RATINGS:The defending champions at the top, the Lions in the middle level

Shawn-Windsor: 9-8

The reason: the offense directed by Jared Goff, and improved receivers and D’Andre Swift and the offensive line and the tight end, and, well, what about everyone! – should be good enough to make this team squeak at .500. The defense will give up points but will pressure the quarterback enough.

Lions MVP: jared goff

Lions running back leader: Fast

Leading Lions receiver: Amon-Ra St. Brown

Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown practices during the first day of training camp on July 27, 2022 at Allen Park.

Jared Goff TD/INT: 10/26

Where the Lions’ offense will rank: eleven

Where the Lions defense will qualify: 22

MORE FROM WINDSOR:Part of Jared Goff was missing for a while. He and the Lions think they have found it.

NFC Division Winners: Dallas, Green Bay, Tampa Bay, San Francisco

NFC wildcards: LA Rams, Minnesota, Philadelphia

NFC Title Game: Tampa Bay over San Francisco

AFC division winners: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Kansas City

AFC Wild Cards: Tennessee, Denver New England

AFC title game: Buffalo over Kansas City

Super Bowl: Buffalo over Tampa Bay
