Lions, Bears meet with coaches hoping to return for 4th year

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions need a lot to go their way to get a postseason spot for the second straight year and third time in Jim Caldwell's four seasons.

"If we don't handle our business, it doesn't matter," Lions receiver Golden Tate said.

In each of the last three games, that's true because the Lions must win out and hope the NFC South teams in contention have some losses this month.
