The NFL has plenty of teams needing a win during week 16.
While these teams need wins to keep their playoff hopes alive, or maintain their seeding position, not everyone will get their much needed win.
However, there are two teams who will most likely win their game during week 16.
The Detroit Lions are catching the break of a lifetime.
After starting the season as the worst NFL team for 2022, they now look to make NFL history with a playoff berth.
Fun fact: The last NFL team to start 1-6 and still make the playoffs were the 1970 Cincinnati Bengals (8-6).
They lost 17-0 to the Colts in the Divisional round.

However, they must win out to have a shot at making this history.
With them going against the Carolina Panthers, they look to ride into another victory.
While their defense still has some issues, Jared Goff has been solid over his last six games.
He’s thrown for 1,563 yards, nine touchdowns, and zero interceptions while having a 104.4 passer rating.
With him playing mistake-free football, the Lions have an easy win against another easy opponent.
The Buffalo Bills face the Chicago Bears already having a spot in the NFL playoffs.
However, a win over the Bears will give the Bills the AFC East division title.
With the Bears defense being unable to hold off opponents, this game gives the Bills their easiest game remaining for their season.
They will take full advantage of this, as a win also keeps them in front of the Kansas City Chiefs for the number one seed.
While the Bears offense has life thanks to Justin Fields, he can’t do everything to win the game.
This leaves the door open for an easy win by the Bills.
