Ndamukong Suh Sees No Reason Why Lions Can't Go 15-1

In March, Ndamukong Suh said he didn't see any reason why the Lions couldn't go 16-0 this season. Well, their loss in Week 6 to the 49ers put a wrench in that thought process. The next best record is 15-1 and Suh is not shying away from boasting that this team has what it takes to go unbeaten here on out:

"Why not?" defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said.

"I said that for the simple fact that I feel like this team at any point in time we can win any particular game," Suh said. "And that's because the type of coaches we have in those offices up there and ... the type of guys that we have in that locker room and how we've bonded together and how we've created an environment that's a winning environment. And we don't expect anything less than that.

After the Lions started 5-0, I thought they had a legitimate shot at being 11-0 heading into New Orleans in Week 13, but let's be real, the Lions weren't going undefeated this season and they probably won't go 15-1. As I said in March, Suh's not making a prediction, he's just exuding confidence in his team's talent.
