      Alone in first, Lions choosing words carefully

      Detroit coach Jim Schwartz is brushing off any talk of his team's position in the standings.

      The Lions won at Chicago on Sunday to take over sole possession of first place in the NFC North. With a favorable-looking schedule and generally good health, Detroit has a good chance to win its first division title since the 1993 season - but there's still a lot of football to be played.

      Schwartz says right now, the Lions have six wins, and that's not going to be enough.

      Detroit is 6-3, one game ahead of Chicago and Green Bay. The Lions play at Pittsburgh next weekend.
