With just three games left in the NFL's regular season, a lot of teams have their eyes on the playoffs. While some teams have already locked up postseason berths, others are still fighting just to get in.

The Detroit Lions fall into the latter category. Considering how poorly their season began, however, just being in the playoff hunt at this point is a sign of a massive turnaround.

After starting the season 1-6, the Lions flipped the script and have gone 6-1 since. They are now in second place in the NFC North at 7-7. With the improved play, their odds to make the postseason have improved along with them.

Sure, the Lions still have plus odds to get into the postseason, but if they keep up the pace then those odds will only improve.
