As of now, the Lions are 0-10-1 under Campbell. That’s obviously a discouraging record, but they’ve been in a lot of close games this year.
With only six games remaining on the season, Campbell has a new mindset. He wants his team to play spoiler against opponents vying for a playoff spot.
“We’ve got six to go and we’re playing spoiler now,” Campbell said, via the Detroit Free Press. “We’re trying to ruin people’s day is what we’re trying to do. And so, how do we improve on the things that we’ve done a good job of and make it a little bit better? And then certainly the things that continue to show up, how do we help? But I think now it’s all about how do we make these last six opponents kind of have to deal with what we’ve dealt with for the season? That’s the message.”
The Lions will have plenty of opportunities to play spoiler over the next few weeks. Their final six opponents are the Vikings, Broncos, Cardinals, Falcons, Seahawks and Packers.
Campbell just needs one win to ensure the Lions don’t become the first NFL team in modern history to go winless twice
