If the Lions stay healthy and protect Mathew Stafford they will definitely make it to the playoffs next year. Being a Panthers fan I would like to say the team that will have the biggest turnaround will be the Panthers. But I don't think they will be. I believe it will be the Detroit Lions. The Lions are a young team with young stars like Jahvid Best, Ndamukong Suh, Mathew Stafford and of course Calvin Johnson.

Last season they had a lot of really close losses, losses which they should now be able to turn into wins because they have another year of experience together. If the Lions stay healthy and protect Mathew Stafford they will definitely make it to the playoffs next year.
