As for Thursday's match up against the Patriots, Schwartz said he is hoping this will be a chance for his team to get back on track. The short schedule may be unique but playing on a Thursday is not.

"...It seems as though it is becoming more and more common. There's going to be three games this Thanksgiving, so it's not as rare for other teams. This has been a tradition that has been a long time standing in Detroit and there's been some memorable days. There's been a lot of magic involved with Thanksgiving. We need to pick that back up from a tradition standpoint and make it very difficult on opponents that come here to play on Thanksgiving. I think we're on the right path there but we need to get back on the winning track and Thanksgiving is a great day to do it."
