ALLEN PARK, Mich. - The Detroit Lions like to call themselves an indoor team with an outdoor mentality.Now its time to put that mantra to the test.Needing one win to clinch a playoff spot, the Lions will play at Chicago on Sunday against the struggling Bears. Although Detroit is heavily favoured the weekend, the price for a loss could be severe: The regular-season finale the following weekend is at Green Bay, where the Lions have not won since 1991.Detroit plays its home games indoors at Ford Field, but the race for post-season position will come down to two outdoor games against division rivals, in potentially difficult conditions.Weve got to be a physical team and weve got to be able to run the ball, star receiver Calvin Johnson said. When it gets inclement out there, rain, windy, weve got to be able to work in the trenches. Outside, we have to be able to get those blocks to spring our running backs loose.Cold weather has not been kind to the Lions over the last two decades. Detroit has lost 13 straight games with the temperature at 35 degrees or below, a streak that began with a playoff loss at Green Bay in 1994, according to STATS.Detroit has practiced outside this week in chilly Michigan air, and unlike in seasons past, these Lions seem built to play in adverse conditions. Thanks to its bruising defence, Detroit hasnt needed to rely on Johnson and quarterback Matthew Stafford as much. The Lions are particularly tough against the run, so they could be at an advantage if the weather makes passing difficult.Earlier this season, the Lions cooled down their indoor facility during practice, and this week, coach Jim Caldwell wanted his players outside.You always have to deal with wind conditions. Indoors we dont have the wind, Caldwell said. You see from previously, when weve had to play in a cold weather, we usually open the doors and try to get the temperature the same. But, obviously in this particular case, were going to go outside. The ground is not frozen or anything of that nature where we have to worry about the guys having issues with footing and things.Detroit (10-4) has won three in a row, all at home. The teams most recent road game was last month at New England, and the Lions lost 34-9, but the streak of losses at 35 degrees or lower can be attributed in part to Detroits futility in general over the last 20 years. Its not as though the Lions have been great in warm weather either.In those 13 losses in colder temperatures, the Lions have entered with a better record than their opponent only three times, and never was the disparity in Detroits favour as big as it is this weekend. The Lions are five games ahead of Chicago (5-9) in the standings, and the Bears are set to go with Jimmy Clausen at quarterback. Hell make his first start since 2010.Lions defensive co-ordinator Teryl Austin says the team was able to find a decent amount of footage on Clausen, even though he hasnt played much.We have a good film staff, Austin said. Obviously, you can go back quite a few years, so weve been able to look at him and look at some of the things that he does. And obviously, you have some preseason tape and some snaps from this year.This combination — a tough defence against an inexperienced quarterback — means this may be Detroits best chance in quite some time to win a cold-weather game. And this would be quite a time to do it.I like playing outdoors. We like practicing outdoors, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said. If youre in this league long enough, its good on the joints. Its definitely fun. Were looking forward to Chicago and then going from there.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Josh Lambo Jersey . PAUL, Minn.

The NFL fined Tomlin $100,000 on Wednesday for interfering with Baltimores Jacoby Jones on a kickoff return in the third quarter of a 22-20 loss to the Ravens on Thanksgiving night.The Pittsburgh Penguins have taken control of their series with the New York Rangers, winning Game Four to push the Blueshirts to the brink. Notes on Crosby, Malkin, Nash and more. RANGERS REELING The Pittsburgh Penguins have been having their way with the New York Rangers and it continued in Game Four, with Pittsburgh winning 4-2 to take a 3-1 lead in the series. Through the first four games of this series, the Penguins have controlled play to a surprising degree, considering that the Rangers were a superior possession team during the regular season. In 5-on-5 score close situations against the Rangers, the Penguins are getting 59.5% of the shot attempts against the Rangers. Its hard enough to get the better of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, but if their team is dominating the puck, the hill gets awfully steep in a hurry. In Game Four, Crosby and Malkin, playing together, toyed with the Rangers, controlling better than 78% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts. Crosby contributed a couple of assists and Malkin had a goal and an assist to increase his team-leading playoff point total to 12 points in 10 games. Malkin only had three shots on goal, but had 13 attempts (six missed the net, four blocked). LW Chris Kunitz and defencemen Kris Letang and Paul Martin were also over 70% in terms of shot attempts. With Penguins D Brooks Orpik leaving after only 5:15 of ice time, Martin (30:05 TOI) and Letang (27:56 TOI) both logged heavy minutes. The mirror image, for the Rangers, is that Martin St. Louis, Carl Hagelin (who scored the Rangers first goal) and Brad Richards were getting worked, all on for 25% or less of the shot attempts. The Rangers had LW Chris Kreider in the lineup for the first time since March 24.dddddddddddd. He played 15:24 and was one of two Rangers to at least break even on shot attempts. The other Ranger with better than 50% Corsi in the game was the much-maligned Rick Nash, who led the Rangers with four shots on goal (and six attempts) but, for the eighth straight game, he was held without a point and has been a target for boos from the MSG faithful. Thats not unreasoanble, Nash has one goal in 23 playoff games with the Rangers over the past two seasons, yet over the past two regular seasons, hes scored 47 goals in 109 games -- his 0.43 goals per game in that span ranks 13th, between Joe Pavelski and Marian Hossa. Expectations are higher and the fact that the Rangers are unable to score, managing five goals in four games against Marc-Andre Fleury (not exactly the paragon of playoff goaltending in recent seasons), only serves to highlight Nashs playoff drought. It should go without saying that Nash generating as many shots as he is (a playoff-leading 45, with zero goals!) makes it likely that he will resume scoring soon but, for the Rangers sake, with time running out, it may not be soon enough. Fatigue, and a compacted schedule have been commonly cited reasons for the Rangers poor play in this series. Whatever the excuse might be, they are left without wiggle room now. They need to win three straight against the Penguins or they will have plenty of time to rest very soon.
