The second half of the schedule is now underway, and Sunday showed how difficult the road to the playoffs can be for the Lions. Two games seem like they can be penciled in as wins (vs. Carolina and vs. Minnesota), but then again, nothing is guaranteed in the NFL. Two games seem like they might favor the Lions but will be difficult (at Oakland and vs. San Diego). Finally, three games will be quite the challenge (vs. Green Bay, at New Orleans and at Green Bay). It will certainly be interesting to see how everything plays out.
