Could the Lions be the 2nd best team in the AFC West/NFC West?
Assuming most of us believe that SD and San Fran should win their divisions...
If the Lions played in either of these divisions, could they possibly be the 2nd best team? Stuck in the NFC North they have no chance (IMO) of being even the 3rd best team but I believe they'd have a serious argument for being better than Oakland/Denver/KC/ARI/STL/SEA this season.

I think Arizona would still be better.
It's too hard to determine in that AFC West. Denver, KC, and Oakland could all be better or worse than the Lions... however I think one of teams would end up being a little bit better so I will say NO to both divisions.
