Week 9 NFL picks: Lions heavily favored over Jaguars

Andy Lyons

Experts (mostly) predicting a Lions victory over the Jaguars.

If you listen to the experts, the Jacksonville Jaguars don't stand much of a chance against the Detroit Lions this Sunday. Coming off a tough loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Jaguars take on a Lions team looking to get back to .500 after an underwhelming start to the season.

Yahoo! Sports' Mike Silver and Les Carpenter are both picking the Lions to pick up the road victory, while Jason Cole thinks the Jags are going to get their second victory of the season. Meanwhile, Will Brinson is the only CBS Sports expert who thinks the Jags will pick up the home victory.

SB Nation's Joel Thorman also picked the Lions, and he's not incredibly excited about the game. Thorman said the only thing that would make the Jags-Lions tilt entertaining is Tim Tebow under center, which is not happening. Kickoff for Sunday's game from EverBank Field is set for 1 p.m. ET and is being televised on Fox.
