Barstooler’s Big Cat All-in Predicting Lions’ Week 6 Upset.
The Detroit Lions haven’t drawn much attention this season for their good play on the field, but the team remains a must-have given how their season has gone so well.
Detroit has suffered more heartbreaking losses in the first five weeks of the year than most teams in an entire season, and because of this, people are waiting to see if the misery continues or if the Lions find a way to rally.

Barstool athlete Big Cat, also known as Dan Katz, gets on her nerves and predicts the Lions will upset week 6 over the Cincinnati Bengals. As he tweeted, he believes the Lions will find a way this week to get their first win of the year.
That’s a very bold prediction considering how both the Bengals and Lions have looked this season. Cincinnati narrowly missed a missed field goal to beat the Packers 4-1, while the Lions had another meltdown to prevent them from scooping their first win of the season. As a result, many people would not be convinced to pick the Lions.
Big Cat is clearly not conventional in this regard.
In Detroit, things have not gone as planned since the start of the season this year. In Week 1, the Lions almost leveled a 31:10 deficit at halftime, but time ran out in a tough loss to San Francisco. Week 2 only brought more misery when the Lions saw the lead fade at halftime in Green Bay. After that, Week 3 was possibly the biggest disappointment of the year. The Lions had Baltimore late on the ropes but watched an NFL record field goal of 66 yards sink them as time ran out. Week 4 was a narrow 10 point loss in Chicago, and in Week 5 the Lions managed to steal defeat from the jaws of victory again, losing one point 37 seconds ahead in Minnesota 19-17.
With that in mind, the Lions appear to be close, and that is a fact that has not escaped many, even though the fights have risen so far this season.
The Lions and Bengals come into play, two teams going in opposite directions. Cincinnati are 3-2 and are showing signs of being a solid team after seeing some early wins and a great level of competition in a week 5 loss to Green Bay. Detroit meanwhile is only looking for the first win of the season. As bad as the Bengals were in the past, the Lions did not beat them since 1992what a long streak of bad luck is. Cincinnati’s offense with Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase is good, and their defense has been decent so far this season too. The injured Lions will have their hands full even if this game takes place at Ford Field, which could offer a potential advantage.
Will the Lions be able to do enough to catch a winless skid? Many would probably say know, but it’s clear that not everyone believes in this way of thinking.
