The Lions' Quandre Diggs, Jarrad Davis and A'Shawn Robinson bring down Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in the first quarter of a game last season.

Allen Park — With all due respect to newspaper tradition, game-by-game predictions are one of my least favorite things to write each year. Football has so many unknown week-to-week variables that it makes seeing months into the future impossible.

If I'm being honest, my 5-year-old daughter, who I can't guarantee would correctly identify the sport of football if I put a game on television, might best my predictions below based strictly on picking her preferred mascot.  

But since The Detroit News refuses to publish my daughter's predictions, you'll have to deal with my guesses, based a mixture of incomplete information and gut feelings. Cheers!
