Rams losing streak helping out the Lions' draft


On Sunday, former Lions QB Matthew Stafford threw a pick-six for the third straight game in the Rams 36-28 loss in Green Bay. It was 36-10 before the Rams offense rallied late. The loss was L.A.’s third in a row. And the draft pick the Rams dealt to the Lions as part of the trade package to acquire Stafford this offseason keeps getting better for Detroit.

The Rams’ first-round pick is now the No. 23 overall pick. Three weeks ago it was No. 31. Sean McVay’s team has given up 95 points in those three losses and fallen from the No. 1 seed in the NFC to the No. 5 spot.

The improved draft slot is about the only reason a Lions fan would root for the Rams to lose to the Packers, but here we are.
