ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Detroit is within striking distance of its first division title since 1993 and the automatic playoff berth that comes with it.We can taste it, defensive end Jason Jones said after Sundays 16-14 win over Minnesota. Its right there in front of us.Coach Jim Caldwells strict one-game-at-a-time philosophy has served the Lions well thus far, and he doesnt want his players losing sight of that with games at NFC North rivals Chicago and Green Bay to close the regular season.They might not go (to the playoffs) if they dont start focusing up on this next game, either, Caldwell said. That is a point to make. Its like texting and driving. You cant have your focus and attention on two things at one time. ... Its no different. Obviously, Im not talking about the same dire consequences, but Im talking about an example of distorted vision.The Lions have reached this point by toughing out close games all season. Half of their 10 wins have been by seven points or fewer. Just three other teams in the league (Green Bay, Arizona and San Francisco) have won five games by a touchdown or less. Not one has won more close games than Detroit.They have grit, Caldwell said. They are very rarely deterred when a big challenge comes their way. They are able to hang in there and play with poise down the stretch and overcome some difficult circumstances. ... They play as a unit in that way. They just arent shaken by the moment. They have supreme focus when they need it.And the Lions have fought through early holes in many of those games, including a 21-0 deficit against Atlanta and 14-point comeback wins over New Orleans and against the Vikings on Sunday.It doesnt matter however you get them, safety James Ihedigbo said. Our mindset is were going to fight. If were up in the game, were going to fight and if we have to come back, I think thats sharpening our character as a team and showing our resilience and the ability to fight through adversity.Although the offence has closed out games with critical drives, the defence has also played a big part in the Lions late-game success.The Vikings racked up 193 yards, nine first downs and two touchdowns in their first four drives on Sunday. After that, the Lions surrendered just 167 yards and 12 first downs the rest of the way.That resiliency will be tested in the next two weeks as the Lions hit the road. Its hard for everyone not to look ahead to the finale at Lambeau Field with the Packers currently sharing a 10-4 record with Detroit.But, as Caldwell has stressed all season, the only game that matters is the next one on the schedule: at Chicago on Sunday.You have to earn your way into the playoffs, Caldwell said. You dont talk your way in. . We havent earned it yet. We still have to go to work.NOTES: Right tackle LaAdrian Waddle sustained a left knee injury in the second half of the win over Minnesota, and his outlook may be in doubt. It doesnt look good for him, Caldwell said. We continue to look at him and do a little evaluation. ... Caldwell acknowledged that rugby star Jarryd Hayne did visit Detroit during his tour of NFL teams after a workout in San Diego. We take a look at a lot of different people all the time, Caldwell said. It is a constant sort of exploration for us, where were always looking for ways to improve. Marcus Cooper Jersey .
