Lions back home but face tough matchup with Carolina

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.
