Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has his team going in the right direction while Jeff Fisher has the Titans going the wrong way.
Two years ago, then-Titans defensive coordinator Schwartz left Tennessee to accept the head coaching gig in Detroit. The Titans had finished that season with a regular season record of 13-3, best in the NFL. The Lions were winless at 0-16, worst in the NFL.
Fast forward two years and Schwartz's Lions are playing good football. Earlier this year they had a tough schedule and lost some close games but didn't quit. Here are the close losses they've had against playoff teams.
Week One - lost to the Bears by 5
Week Two - lost to the Eagles by 3
Week Four - lost to the Packers by 2
Week Nine - lost to the Jets by 3
Week Thirteen - lost to the Bears by 4
