The Lions are still searching for their first win, while the defending NFC champs don’t even look like the best team in their own division. The two clubs will be under the microscope on Monday Night Football in a pivotal conference matchup at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
The Lions are off to their worst start since 2010, when they lost their first four games en route to a 6-10 finish. You don’t want to bury anybody after just three games, but an 0-3 start is a huge hole to crawl out of for a Lions team seeking to make back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since the mid-90s.
The rediscovery of Jimmy Graham and the return of Kam Chancellor helped the Seattle Seahawks put aside an 0-2 start.
Those factors as well as the performance by an undrafted rookie have lessened the concern over star running back Marshawn Lynch’s health.
Lynch, who had been dealing with a sore back and neck along with a calf injury, had a difficult time getting himself loose before last Sunday’s 26-0 victory over Chicago. He didn’t come out of the locker room until midway through the first half, rushing five times for 14 yards before injuring his hamstring.
The team announced Sunday the five-time Pro Bowler won’t play Monday after not practicing this week. He’s only missed one game since joining the Seahawks early in the 2010 season.
The Seahawks won the last two home meetings by a combined 33 points but dropped the most recent matchup 28-24 in 2012 when Stafford threw a touchdown pass with 20 seconds left.
