Stafford's finger injury looms large as Lions take on Seahawks

Stafford's finger injury looms large as Lions take on Seahawks

For a team that defined itself with eight fourth-quarter comebacks this fall, the Detroit Lions sure had a lousy fourth quarter of the NFL season.

They head into Saturday night’s game at CenturyLink Field having dropped the last three games — against the New York Giants, Dallas and Green Bay — and without a road playoff victory since 1957.

For most of the season, the Lions had turned on the afterburners in the third and fourth quarter and put away opponents. In the last three games, though, they have been outscored, 49-13, in the second half, with their only post-halftime touchdown coming on a last-minute Hail Mary against the Packers.

Detroit’s best hope wears a glove...
