The Detroit Lions are no longer undefeated, and that is just fine.
Nobody thought this team was going 16-0, anyway.
So, with a loss under their belt and the dust settling from the scuffle between Jim Schwartz and Jim Harbaugh, the Lions can move on and focus on their opponent this week: the Atlanta Falcons.
The Falcons have alternated wins and losses all season and at this point are coming off a 31-17 win over the Carolina Panthers.
Assuming the Falcons will not accept defeat because of their current pattern means the Lions will have a tough game on their hands.
Here are four players who must step up in order for the Lions to move to 6-1.
