The Lions blew their second straight game and are now 7-8 after losing to the New York Giants 23-20 in overtime Sunday. Matt Stafford threw a pick-six with under five minutes left to let the Giants tie the game at 20. Detroit went 3-and-out on their next two drives, but they intercepted Eli Manning with 23 seconds left to prevent the Giants winning at the end of regulation. Instead of trying to set up for a field goal, Schwartz elected to run out the clock and head to overtime. That decision likely led to fans booing as the final seconds ticked off the clock at the end of regulation.
Schwartz wasn’t pleased with the fan reaction and appeared to look at them and ask what the f— they were booing for. Gee, I dunno, maybe because you guys can’t beat the Giants and blew a golden opportunity to make the playoffs? Get with it, Schwartz.
Here’s a GIF of the Schwartz-fan thing:
Keep in mind a report said Schwartz would be fired if the Lions missed the playoffs. He’s toast.
