Stafford hurt, but defense is what’s letting Lions down

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) As hard as this is to believe, Matthew Stafford’s injury may not be Detroit’s biggest problem.

The veteran quarterback missed a second straight game last weekend with back and hip problems, but unless he could have played defense, Stafford might not have been able to win that game. The Lions put up a decent amount of points but lost 35-27 to Dallas.

Detroit has allowed at least 20 points in nine of its 10 games this season. The Lions have allowed at least 31 points in four of their past seven.
