After win over Bears, Lions still face uphill climb

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions could enjoy the rest of their weekend, knowing their playoff hopes were still very much intact after a victory over Chicago on Saturday.

On Sunday, however, the scores from around the league gave the Lions little reason for excitement.

Victories by Carolina and New Orleans (10-4) left the Lions two games behind those teams with two to play. Detroit (8-6) is also a half-game behind Atlanta. The Lions lost earlier this season to the Panthers, Saints and Falcons, and Detroit has to beat out at least one of those NFC South teams if it's going to make the playoffs as a wild card.
