After a stellar 2011 season in which the Detroit Lions went 10-6 and made the playoffs for the first time in 12 years, the team has all but fallen apart in 2012.
The Lions, after a 20-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings at home, are now 1-3 and looking worse every week.
The franchise, which has won only one playoff game since 1957, looks like all the momentum coming out of 2011 is gone.
The Lions have now lost three straight, eclipsing their biggest losing streak of 2011, and several players must turn things around to get the team back in the win column.
So, who's to blame for the Lions' losing ways, so far? We take a look at five players who need to step up to get Detroit back in the playoff hunt.
