2010 Detroit Lions season Head coach Jim Schwartz Home field Ford Field Results Record 6–10 Division Place 3rd NFC North Playoff finish did not qualify Pro Bowlers DT Ndamukong Suh WR Calvin Johnson Uniform Timeline Previous season Next season 2009 2011 The 2010 Detroit Lions season was the franchise's 81st season in the NFL. It was Jim Schwartz's second season as head coach. The Lions spent most of the season at the bottom of their division, but with more division wins than the Vikings (whose overall record was the same), the Lions ended up at 3rd place on the final day of the season with a victory over Minnesota. They were eliminated from playoff contention after their Thanksgiving Day loss, extending their postseason drought to 11 seasons, tied with Buffalo for the longest active streak in the NFL. High points of the season included two division wins, a four game winning streak which included a 7–3 victory over the eventual Super Bowl XLV champion Green Bay Packers, and a snap to their record 26 game road losing streak. The Lions also sent two players to the 2011 Pro Bowl: wide receiver Calvin Johnson and rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
