The Detroit Lions have finally restored the roar of the franchise. After a heavy overhaul of the roster over the past few years, Martin Mayhew has built a promising foundation of talent, especially on offense.
The Lions lit up the NFL last season, ranking fifth in offense as well as fourth in passing. The run game was non-existent due to an unhealthy and unproductive backfield. However, the high-volume pass attack was stable and consistent enough to carry Detroit to a 10-6 record.
Next season should feature the Lion's run game, creating more balance and less pressure on the offense. With Detroit's defense still a work in progress, the Lions' offense will be forced to carry a heavy load.
Here are projections of key Lions on offense next season.
