The schedule in the second half of the season is very favorable. With games against the 49ers this week, the Cardinals next, and then the Dolphins on Thanksgiving, that is three games straight against below .500 teams. If Detroit goes out and wins the games they should, then 7 or more wins might now be that far-fetched.
Aside from the record and games down the road, the first win in that stretch has to be today. Although it might not mean much, the 49ers game is a must-win. If Detroit does get the "W" then they will be 3-5 and will hold a 2-game winning streak. The season can still be saved with a few more wins, and that first has to come today against the 49ers.
