Detroit Lions - 2022 NFL Season Preview and Wins Total Prediction

The Detroit Lions head into the 2022 season with lots of unanswered questions combined with lots of excitement for the future in Detroit. Jared Goff has a full year in Detroit under his belt and will be leaned on heavily on this year to lead the Lions to promise going forward.

The Lions offense will be in year 2 with the staff and will have a completely new look. Goff will be behind a healthy offensive line with a host of weapons around him. D'Andre Swift will be looked upon in a big way to start the year as the Lions will ride him until they get into the groove of things.

Rookie Jameson Williams is expected to step in a big roll for the Lions in his rookie year to make an immediate impact. Amon-Ra St. Brown will have a big roll as well but with the Rookie Jameson sidelined as of now DJ Clark will be looked upon to fill the void.  Clark missed all of last year and will look to return to form and make an impact for his team. 

Defensively Detroit should be much better as Levi Onwuzurike is expected to play much better this year up front for Detroit following a terrible rookie campaign. The prize of the 2022 draft for Detroit is Aidan Hutchinson who will be a huge piece for Detroit as he will be an impact player starting in week 1.
