According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Schwartz told Bills players during OTAs that he wanted to be carried off the field if they defeated the Lions.
Before arriving in Buffalo, Schwartz spent five years as head coach of the Lions, where he amassed a dismal 29-51 record. He was fired in December 2013.
Prior to Sunday's win, Schwartz spoke to the Buffalo News about what type of reaction he expected from fans.
“It doesn’t matter,” he said. “It’s about the game. That’s certainly not important.”
With today's win, the Bills are now 3-2. Buffalo came into Sunday's game ranked 10th in the league in yards allowed per game.
Prior to his stint in Detroit, Schwartz was the defensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans for eight years.
