Survival League Pick: Detroit Lions over Buffalo Bills

Having already chosen the Eagles, Broncos, Saints and Chargers, I'm a little short on options this week. I'm a little nervous picking the Lions, since they're known to blow games they should win, but somehow I'm envisioning the Steelers losing on the road to the Jaguars... Lions it is.

Be sure to make your picks here and here before tonight's game!  Happy Thursday.
