Calvin Johnson reflects on the current record and the remaining two games

Posted Dec 19, 2013

The Lions are now in a situation where they have to rely on other teams to help them into the postseason

Last five games we've turned the ball over. Our turnover ratio is crappy and therefore you don't win games. That's a cliché, but it's the truth. Somehow, some way, we won the Dallas game with four turnovers.

That's unheard of. We have the players to mount that kind of comeback, but the last four games -- a tipped ball, just a regular interception, fumble -- we've had it all.

It's happened all year, but we've really paid for it these last few weeks. Everything we've been practicing, coaches have been coaching regarding turnovers, we just haven't done on the field.

Anybody will say I had an off game anytime I drop the ball. I dropped two – not back-to-back – but kind of in close succession of each other. I didn't get frustrated. You can't get frustrated because I know Matt's going to keep firing them away, so I've just got to keep on playing.

As far as our record, we can't be disappointed because we have two games left. We're not worried about what help we can get or need from other teams. We just need to do our job and win these last two games and let the chips fall where they may.

That's all it is. I don't know what our situation is with other teams – what help we need – I'm just concentrating on this game and then the one after that.
