The Detroit Lions could begin to run away with the division with another win. Pittsburgh Steelers are still trying to claw their way back into contention for a wild card berth. If the Lions won the division, it’d be their first division title in 20 years.
“Being successful in this league is dealing with adversity and bouncing back, but it’s increasingly becoming part of the scope of the NFL to deal with praise and to deal with the accolades and things like that,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “It makes it difficult to stay level headed. It makes it difficult to stay even keeled throughout the course of a season.”
The Steelers are trying to stop the league’s best receiver in Calvin Johnson.
“Johnson needs no endorsement from me,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “He is the best wide receiver in the game and one of the best football players period regardless of position in the game of professional football.
“He’s got over 900 yards receiving, he’s got nine touchdowns through nine games. You can talk about ways to minimize his impact on the game, people, coverages, all of that’s been done through nine games this year and he’s still at about 100 yards per game and a touchdown per game. Obviously we’re going to take our swing at it.”
