    time he returned to Detroit after being fired.Hell walk or jog this
    time.Schwartz meets his former team when the Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) visit the
    Lions (1-3) on Sunday. The defensive coordinator holds no grudges.I think you
    guys would probably be surprised how much I root for the Lions, Schwartz said
    Thursday. As long as its not in direct conflict with the Eagles, I want those
    guys to win every week. Ive got too much blood and sweat in that building, and
    theres a lot of guys there that mean an awful lot to me.Schwartz took over the
    Lions in 2009, a year after they finished 0-16. His first draft class included
    quarterback Matthew Stafford, tight end Brandon Pettigrew and linebacker DeAndre
    Levy.I want those guys to succeed, Schwartz said. Im going to do my very best to
    try to beat them, but I think everybody would be surprised how much you have
    relationships that just dont go away when you leave or a player leaves. Those
    guys have had my back when I coached there, and Ive had their back, and Im sure
    thatll continue. Not this Sunday, though.Schwartz led the Lions to 10 wins and
    their first playoff berth in 12 years in 2011. But he was fired after going 7-9
    in 2013. He was Buffalos defensive coordinator in 2014 when the Bills beat
    Detroit 17-14 at Ford Field. That was an emotional return for Schwartz, who got
    to ride off on the shoulders of two players.Its all business this time.Ive been
    there, done that, Schwartz said. I think that (game) was probably a little bit
    different in that I probably had about 10 coaches that worked for me that were
    still on the staff. I mean, most of the team had played for me. Sure, thats
    going to be emotional. Youre not a human being if its not.The surprising Eagles
    are aiming to stay undefeated and Schwartzs defense is a big reason for the
    teams success. Schwartz has engineered a dramatic turnaround. A unit that ranked
    in the bottom five each of the past three seasons is third in total yards
    allowed and has given up just three touchdowns and two field goals in three
    games.Schwartz was given full control of the defense after coach Doug Pederson
    hired him in January. The Eagles brought in a few of his former players and made
    other moves to add talent.I dont think this was the worst defense in the NFL
    last year, but situation that came up, their numbers werent very good, Schwartz
    said. I think having an infusion of some new guys helped move them past that a
    little bit.---AP NFL website: and Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Wholesale

    have the Hurricanes rolling, and now they get to take the show on the
    road.Victor Rask got his eighth goal of the season and Noah Hanifin scored his
    first, helping the Hurricanes beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Sunday night for
    their fourth straight win.The 23-year-old Rask was the oldest of Carolinas goal
    scorers in this one, backed by the 19-year-old Hanifin and 21-year-old Elias
    Lindholm.All but one of the Hurricanes 12 goals during this winning streak have
    been scored by players 24 or younger. The stretch has helped Carolina find its
    footing after a 3-6-4 start to the season.Its a great bunch of guys, said goalie
    Cam Ward, who is the fourth-oldest player for Carolina at 32. Its a fun group.
    Its an exciting group. There is a lot of potential in this locker room. Its
    great to see us putting it together. Guys want to score goals.Carolina finished
    this homestand 4-1-0 and now starts a three-game swing through Canada.Lindholm
    also got his first goal this season in the first period, and the Hurricanes kept
    up the pressure from there, challenging goalie Connor Hellebuyck with 40
    shots.We got the first one early, Lindholm said. Hopefully for me, it will build
    some more confidence. I turned down some opportunities in the last two games and
    didnt believe in myself and my shot. Hopefully now I can get some more and take
    some more.Carolinas young legs took advantage of the Jets in the third period
    after Winnipeg played the night before, a 4-1 loss in Boston. It was the third
    game -- all losses -- of a five-game trip.Its going to be big to get a couple of
    days between games, captain Blake Wheeler said. Its been a pretty big grind, one
    like Ive never experienced before. Were a tired hockey team, theres no question
    about that. But weve got a group that can fight througgh it.dddddddddddd We just
    need to get our rest.Winnipegs next game is on Wednesday.Rask made it 2-0 on a
    power play early in the third, and after Mark Scheifele got his 11th goal for
    the Jets, Hanifin put it away with a power-play score with 1:43 left.Lindholm
    got on the board 6:45 in. He swept in from the left side along the goal line and
    ripped a shot past Hellebuyck on the short side. The goalie was screened by
    defenseman Dustin Byfuglien and couldnt find the puck.Rask stretched the lead by
    taking slick pass from Lee Stempniak in close and lifting it past
    Hellebuyck.Scheifele took over the NHL points lead (23) when he narrowed the
    deficit to 2-1. The 23-year-old one-timed a pass from Nikolaj Ehlers after
    Ehlers chased down a loose puck in the corner.Hanifin restored the two-goal lead
    with a hammered one-timer from the right point.The teams also played to open the
    season, when Winnipeg rallied from two goals down to win 4-3 in overtime.Ward
    stalled the effort for a similar rally Sunday with 28 saves. He helped kill off
    a hooking penalty on Viktor Stalberg with about six minutes left by stopping
    three shots.Carolina was perfect on the penalty kill for the ninth straight
    game. It killed three penalties Sunday and leads the NHL with a 91.3 percent
    success rate, including 19 straight. The Hurricanes have allowed only four
    power-play goals, killing off 42 of 46 tries.Game notes Carolina D Ron Hainsey

    of Winnipegs 21 games. ... Rask recorded his second straight game-winning
