DETROIT (AP) — Dan Campbell knows he can’t be picky.
With his team at 0-9-1 and seven games left, the Detroit Lions coach would happily take a win on any day at any NFL stadium.

DETROIT (AP) — Boston Scott and Jordan Howard made the most of filling in for running back Miles Sanders and took advantage of Philadelphia dominating Detroit's defensive line.
