The Detroit Lions can inch closer in the NFC standings, with a victory over the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.
On Thursday Night Football, the Seattle Seahawks were defeated by the San Francisco 49ers, 21-13.
The Seahawks’ loss dropped their record to 7-7 on the season.
With a win, which would be its sixth in the last seven weeks, Detroit would move into a tie with the Seahawks in the eighth spot of the NFC standings.
“I think it’s a huge test, because I know that this team we’re getting ready to face is very much like we are, in that sense, I would say. I think (Robert) Saleh’s a — he’s about the toughness and overcoming adversity, all these things, and you’re built a certain way,” said Dan Campbell. “And so, I think that, I think what you said, we’re going up to their place. We’re out in the elements, though I don’t think it’ll be too bad. And, we’re both jocking for playoff positions here. I think this is critical for both of us. And so, this is a heavyweight fight, because I love our O-line. And, this is a worthy, quality opponent, man, especially their front. So, it’s going to be pretty fun.”

Currently, the Seahawks own the tiebreaker over the Lions, since they were victorious over Detroit at Ford Field in Week 4, 48-45.
Luckily, the Commanders and Giants match up with another in Week 15, hopefully adding another loss for one of those teams (if the game doesn’t end up in a tie).
