ALLEN PARK, Mich. —
“We’re excited about it. I don’t think anybody’s reveling in anybody being injured or anything like that.”
Colts players had the day off Monday. Interim coach Bruce Arians said he didn’t see the celebration by the Lions on film.
“It was a block on an interception. I don’t think it was the block as much as it was the celebration for knocking him out,” Arians said. “It’s not on film. But I know that’s why Mike took issue. A bunch of the guys on the sideline saw it and I don’t really have anything to say about it.”
That’s what this Detroit season has turned into: a weekly rehashing of the team’s troubles. The Lions led each of the last three games with 2:00 remaining in regulation, but lost them all.
What looked last year like one of the league’s most promising young franchises is now stuck in a rut. And the road doesn’t become any easier next weekend when the Lions play at Green Bay.
“I wouldn’t say regressed. We’ve gone off track for sure,” Schwartz said. “We’ve made those plays at times this year. We haven’t done it enough.”
