That team? Shockingly, it's the Detroit Lions. While the Seattle Seahawks were the playoff team last year between these two, they certainly didn't look like a playoff contender last week when they were blown out at home against division rivals Los Angeles Rams.

And the Seahawks didn't look good on either side of the ball. While Seattle never turned the ball over on offense, that's about the lone bright spot from their week 1 performance. Despite being loaded with talent, the Rams' defense kept them in check all game long and didn't even allow a point in the second half. They also pressured quarterback Geno Smith all game long, recording multiple sacks and even forcing Smith to exclaim "Oh my god" on one play in particular as Aaron Donald came at him like a freight train.

The defense didn't look any better either, only getting to the quarterback twice and not recording a single sack. That's great news for the Lions and quarterback Jared Goff, who scored a shocking upset against the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL Kickoff Game. 

While the Lions didn't look incredible against the Chiefs, they certainly looked like a playoff-ready team. They took advantage of mistakes by the Chiefs, including when rookie safety Brian Branch turned a Kadarius Toney drop into a defensive touchdown. The Seahawks can clearly be pressured, and if the Lions can capitalize on mistakes again, it'd be surprising to see them lose this one. 

According to DraftKings, the Lions are 5-point home favorites with an over-under of 47.5 points.
