That's the stated goal of the two executives now in charge of running the Detroit Lions in the wake of Matt Millen's dismissal Wednesday.
Executive vice president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew say they want to focus the franchise on winning its next game against Chicago.
Lewand will report to owner William Clay Ford on business issues, and Mayhew will report to Ford on football matters.
Detroit's season seems to be over after getting routed in its first three games. The Lions are heading into their bye week before an Oct. 5 home against the Bears.
But Lewand and Mayhew told beat writers Thursday a lot can be done to salvage the year.
