ALLEN PARK Byron Murphy Jersey , Mich. (AP)Jim Caldwell is not looking too far ahead. is offering to his team as they prepare for the Thanksgiving Day matchup with the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings at Ford Field. The Vikings (8-2) lead the division by two games over Detroit (6-4). But don’t try telling Caldwell that this next game is more significant than any other. ”They’re all big,” Caldwell said. ”Every single one of them’s a factor in the grand scheme of things. The most important one is the next one. ”Someone else might have a different philosophy. I don’t believe in functioning that way. My experience has been it can work against you more than it works for you when you start looking at the grand scheme of things. ”You can’t act as if one game is going to make a complete difference in the season, because you don’t know what’s going to happen the rest of the season. You have no idea.” The Lions only need to look back to the 2016 season to understand how looking ahead can lead to disappointment. Last Thanksgiving, the Lions and Vikings also met, and Detroit’s 16-13 victory improved the Lions to 7-4 and gave them the NFC North lead by one game over the Vikings. However the Lions dropped their final three games of the regular seaso untered over his coaching career, convinced Caldwell to narrow his focus and avoid looking beyond what’s next. ”I fight against it with everything I hav ’re a very good team. They’re on a roll.” The Lions’ 27-24 win at Chicago on Sunday gave them a 3-0 road mark within the division for the first time in the Super Bowl era. ”Anytime you win on the road in this league it’s a huge bonus,” Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said. ”On the contrary, we haven’t done a great job at home.” The Lions have a solid 4-1 road record, but are only 2-3 at Ford Field. ”We’ll have a y Monday, the Lions would drop to the eighth seed if the Atlanta Falcons (5-4) defeat the sixth-seeded Seattle Seahawks (6-3) on Monday night, because the Falcons beat the Lions earlier this season. The Lions also lost to the Carolina Panthers (7-3) and New Orleans Saints (8-2) and would lose any tiebreaker to either of those teams. Not that Caldwell is worrying about all those possibilities. ”We’re not worried about ramifications, we’re not worried about all of the buildup and things of that nature ed about how we play. That’s what our goal is, to get focused in on our preparation and get ready to play a tough, hard-fought game.” — The Falcons announced a change to their coaching staff on Tuesday.Bryant Young is stepping down as defensive line coach after spending the last two years on the job. Young said that the decision was made because of family reasons.“Over the past four year taught me is to not take tomorrow for granted. Under the weight of those considerations, I have made the difficult decision not to coach this year with the Falcons. It was not an easy decision as I think highly of the Falcons organization and the staff I have worked with the past two years.”The Falcons will replace Young with Jess Simpson. Simpson was the team’s assistant defensive line coach in 2017 and spent last season at the University of Miami.
