The Lions are tied atop the NFL standings after Week 6

USA Today

Through the first six weeks of the 2023 season, no team has been better than the Detroit Lions. After Sunday’s 20-6 drubbing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Lions are now 5-1.

The two remaining unbeaten teams entering the weekend, the 49ers and Eagles, both lost on Sunday. They’re also 5-1, as are the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC. Detroit beat the Chiefs in Kansas City in Week 1.


The Lions are technically still in third in the NFC because of the tie-breaker rules. San Francisco and Philadelphia lost to AFC teams (Cleveland and the New York Jets, respectively), while Detroit’s loss came in the conference in Week 2 to Seattle. Detroit does have the highest strength of schedule of any of the five 5-1 teams.
