Jim Schwartz is standing by his decision to call a fake field goal in the fourth quarter at Pittsburgh.

In fact, the Detroit coach sounds ready to do it again if the right situation presents itself.

The Lions were up by four early in the final quarter against the Steelers on Sunday, but their fake deep in Pittsburgh territory didn't work.

Detroit collapsed after that, allowing two touchdowns and losing 37-27, falling back into a first-place tie with Chicago in the NFC North.

Schwartz says the Lions got the look they wanted on the fake field goal, but didn't execute it great.
