ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Quarterback Matthew Stafford has been in a slump and so have the Detroit Lions.

Stafford has 12 turnovers over the last five games. Four of those have been losses since Detroit beat the Chicago Bears on Nov. 10 to take over first place in the NFC North.

The Lions have lost fourth-quarter leads in each loss. Last Sunday’s 18-16 loss to Baltimore dropped them to third place in the division.

Instead of being in control of their postseason fate, the Lions have to beat the New York Giants at home and Minnesota on the road while hoping Chicago and Green Bay both lose at least one game to rally for a spot in the playoffs.
