The Detroit Lions exceeded plenty of expectations following an entertaining Hard Knocks season. Dan Campbell has the Lions headed in a strong direction in just his second year as the team’s head coach.
Detroit still has some holes to fill on its roster looking toward the offseason, but the Lions have a fairly balanced offensive attack with a passing and rushing game that are slightly above average. Defensively is a different story. Detroit has one of the worst offenses in the NFL especially in pass defense, but the rushing D isn’t a whole lot better. The defense should be the first priority heading into 2023.
