The Detroit Lions lost their fourth of the last five games last night after falling 18-16 to the Baltimore Ravens and the leg of Baltimore Ravens K Justin “Legatron” Tucker. Detroit had been in the driver’s seat of the NFC North heading into Week 11, but have now fallen to third place in the division and in order to reach the post-season, they need help from the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. The Lions late season collapse could cost head coach Jim Schwartz his job at the end of the regular season.
According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, Schwartz must reach the playoffs in order to return in 2014. “On Lions: View from inside is they must make playoffs for Jim Schwartz to keep his job. If they don’t, it’s 1 for 5 in the postseason,” reports Rapoport on Twitter this morning.
