DETROIT (AP) Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions have three straight home games coming up - probably their last chance to turn their season around and make a run at a playoff spot.
The opposition is formidable, though.
After three consecutive losses, the Lions host Carolina on Sunday. That game is followed by a Thanksgiving matchup with Chicago and another home test against the NFC West-leading Rams. There's time for Detroit to rally, but the path forward looks difficult.
