Notes:
The Lions had a very tough season last year and this one looks to be just as challenging. With head coach Sam Harrell stepping down and only 7 starters coming back it will be very difficult to make it to the playoffs. If they are to have a chance, RB Dove will have to provide the spark. Look for the Lions to go 5-5 or 6-4 in the regular season and fight for that last playoff spot.
