The Detroit Lions had a golden opportunity to win the NFC North in 2013. Jay Cutler went down for the Bears, and Aaron Rodgers went down for the Packers. The door was open for the Lions.

But after a tough loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night, Detroit's playoff hopes have dwindled, and Jim Schwartz may be in danger of losing his job.

According to Ian Rapoport, Schwartz has to make the playoffs in order to save his job. Monday wasn't a good step towards job security.
