“There’s going to be a time that we don’t celebrate getting to the playoffs, but it’s not going to be tonight,” Schwartz said. “It’s been a long time coming.”

The win was the Lions’ third straight.  They will get a chance to improve their playoff position next week, when they head to Lambeau Field to take on division rival Green Bay.
