(WXYZ) — The Detroit Lions still haven’t secured a playoff spot this season and now they have to wait until Sunday for their next opportunity.

Detroit leads the NFC North with a 10-4 record and would have clinched a playoff spot had the Los Angeles Rams lost on Thursday Night Football, but they beat the New Orleans Saints 30-22.

Detroit now faces division rival Minnesota on the road Sunday afternoon.


A win for the Lions would clinch their first playoff berth since 2016 and their first division title in 30 years.

Even if the Lions don’t win, they could still make the playoffs by losing to the Seattle Seahawks.

Even if neither of these things happens, the Lions will be just one win away from clinching the division and taking on the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday, December 30th.

The game can be watched on Channel 7, followed by the final against “Dallas Cowboys.” Minnesota Vikings, January 7.
