Playoff-bound Lions not done yet

Oh, there was some whooping and hollering after the Lions dismissed the Chargers with a dominating 38-10 win on Christmas Eve.

Shoot, it was Christmas Eve and the team had just given itself the best possible present — a trip to the playoffs.

Still, it’s a focused bunch.

They have one more regular season game at Green Bay next Sunday.

“It was alot of excitement (in the locker room), i don’t think there was too many tears,’’ wide receiver Nate Burleson said.

“We gave the game ball to Mr. Ford. At the end of the day, we made the playoffs true. it feels good, true. Fans are excited, true. But we’re not done, we still have a long way to go. We’re in the tournament now, we might as well go for a championship,’’ Burleson added.

Next weekend’s games will determine whether the Lions are a fifth or sixth seed. While there are many scenarios, the Lions could lose at Green Bay and still be a fifth seed if the Packers beat the Bears tonight (Sunday), New Orleans beats the Falcons and the Bucs beat Atlanta.

I can see the Saints beating the Falcons, but not the Buccaneers. I think the Lions need to beat the Packers at Lambeau field in cheesehead country.
