The thing that scares me most finishing out the season is our "easy" schedule isn't looking so easy anymore...
-TB has been playing very well, took a top team in NFL on the road in Seattle to OT, then won their last two.
-Green Bay obviously should be an easy win with Rodgers out but around the time when he could be returning, or maybe we get torched by our old friend Matt Flynn again.
-Philadelphia tough to predict seems like a different team every week and they're 1-4 at home and this will be a road game for us... but they are way better with Foles running the show.
-Baltimore playing a lot better as of late, D finding it's stride.
-Giants won 4 straight playing better in every facet.
-Vikings should be an easy win.
I see only two given games, GB without A-Rod and Minnesota to end it. Meanwhile the Panthers (6-3 currently) Bears, 49ers, Cardinals (all 6-4) Cowboys and healthy-Rodgers led Packers (both 5-5) all waiting for us to stumble.

Trying to not be too pessimistic, but I am a Lion's fan after all.

I wonder if this perspective would be had if we won today...

I also wonder how the game today has any bearing on our remaining SOS

There aren't really any "easy" games in the NFL. I think that word and thought process is thrown around too loosely when talking about NFL games. It applies to the NFL more than other sports like basketball.

It would've been the same? Obviously we would've had a little bit higher of a leg up but the fact that all the teams that made our schedule easy are playing better would've still been nerve-racking.

Schedule doesnt matter.

Only team that can stop us, is ourselves.

Im just hoping we can put together a full 4 quarters of football sometime soon.

Havent done that since probably against SD in 2011.
