If only Detroit Lions’ hopes were riding on these commercial stars

And so it comes down to this: Although the Detroit Lions control their destiny a bit — a win over the Green Bay Packers on national TV tonight would give them nine wins for just the sixth time this century, lock up a winning record for the first time since 2016 and denied the Packers a playoff spot for the third time in 14 seasons — they still need some help.

Yes, as you might have heard this week, they need the LA Rams to take down the Seahawks in Seattle in the NFL’s late afternoon window — with kickoff about four hours before the Lions get started in Wisconsin — for that win to clinch a playoff spot. . Otherwise, the Lions are playing just to spite the Packers. (Hey, that’s more than they’ve had in most season finales.)
