Sunday was a nightmare for the Lions, and the bad dream might continue if Staffords fractured right index finger becomes a serious issue. While it's better than a broken hand like originally thought, the finger was obviously an issue against the Bears as his passes were erratic, inaccurate and ended up in Chicago hands four times. Normally when you see a team with 177 more yards than its opponent, you assume there was murder in the streets. Unfortunately for the Lions, it only meant that two pick-sixes caused Stafford to completely abandon the run and throw 63 passes. The Lions are going the wrong direction right now. —Tony Markovich
