“It’s obviously not good where we’re at,” Kennard said. “I’m not the type to be in the middle of the season and be jumping ship and all that. I’m trying to win a game. I’m trying to win on Thursday.
“In all honesty, I’m in the thick of it now. I’m not worried about any of that. I’m worried about Chicago and how to stop Tarik Cohen and Mitchell Trubisky and David Montgomery and that good offensive line.
Linebacker Devon Kennard is looking ahead – to Thursday, and not a day beyond the Detroit Lions’ game against the Chicago Bears at Ford Field.
Kennard’s focus is that narrow. He is fully aware of how disappointing the Lions’ season has been and where they stand with a four-game losing streak and a 3-7-1 record.
The Bears have had disappointments and problems of their own. After winning the NFC North with a 12-4 record last year, they’re 5-6 and have lost five of their last seven games.
Kennard can’t fix the Lions’ record from the first 11 games, but he can work to prevent it from getting worse. He has a “next-game” mentality, with no interest in evaluating the season or looking ahead. There will be time for that in the offseason.
The game between the Detroit Lions and Washington is virtually meaningless in terms of the NFC playoff race, but the game is quite important for two teams mired in lengthy losing streaks. One of the teams will likely end its losing streak when the Lions and Washington face off on on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, FOX, DirecTV) in a Week 12 game.
