San Francisco vs Detroit Free Week 6 Preview & Pick

This is a great matchup between the two most pleasant surprises in the league this season. San Francisco had absolutely no letdown last Sunday after coming back to beat Philadelphia the previous week. They destroyed a pretty good Tampa Bay team, winning by their largest margin since 1987 I believe.

San Francisco

Don’t look know but Alex Smith might be finally figuring out how to play quarterback in this league.

The 49ers have a nice lead in the NFC West and have everything clicking right now. Even though they do not rack up a ton of yards their defense is setting them up with some short fields. As a result they are 7th in points despite being just 27th in total yards. Their defense is second in the league in points allowed at just over 15 per game. Facing Detroit will be a tough test on both sides of the ball.

The 49ers seem to be due for a letdown eventually so I am weary about getting behind them this week. The last two wins have been great and they have built a cushion in their horrible excuse for a division. These teams seem drastically different than those from the past but you can’t totally ignore that San Francisco has had the Lions number, winning seven in a row, most recently in 2009.


Another week, another victory for the Detroit Lions. With all the gleam of Monday night Detroit came through with a victory against Chicago, breaking a string of losses that went back a ways. It wasn’t a beautifully played game but the Lions made a few really explosive plays to get the victory. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

It is a sign of this team’s development that that are able to win in a variety of ways.

The most encouraging part of the Lions performance from Monday was the running game. Jahvid Best ripped off an 88 yard touchdown but he also scampered for another 75 yards on his 11 other carries. If this team develops true balance than they are a nightmare with a passing attack featuring Matt Stafford and Megatron – Calvin Johnson. Alas, his record of consecutive games with 2TDs came to a close even though he did have a 73 yard score.

Detroit has had a special start to the season with their first 5-0 record since the 1950’s. They have a ton of momentum and because of San Francisco’s big win last week the number this week is very reasonable. I like this team to continue to improve and win. With Atlanta at home next week then a visit to Denver the Lions could easily be 8-0 then they hit their bye week.

ATS Pick: Detroit -4
Over/Under Pick: Over
Score Prediction: Detroit 28 – San Francisco 23
