In just his second season, head coach Dan Campbell has completely flipped the script on the attitude and perception of the Detroit Lions franchise. Now, heading into Week 18, the Lions have an opportunity to clinch their first playoff berth since 2016.

Here's how they can get it done.

Detroit Lions Playoff Scenario

Detroit travels to take on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. They'll need a win against Green Bay, who find themselves in a win-or-go-home scenario as well. Tensions will be running high between these two NFC North rivals in a game that FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds project the Packers to win by 4.5 points.

Getting a win against Green Bay is just step one for Detroit, as they'll need some help from the Los Angeles Rams as well. LA plays the Seattle Seahawks in the regular-season finale and must win in order to send the Lions to the postseason. If Seattle loses and Detroit wins, the Lions will secure the No. 7 seed in the NFC.
