The Detroit Lions aren't a desperate team yet. Coach Jim Schwartz prefers the word "urgent."

After a loss at Minnesota on Sunday, the Lions remain in last place in the NFC North at 4-5. Their playoff hopes are looking tenuous, especially with a tough schedule the rest of the way. But Detroit does have a stretch of three straight home games coming up, starting with Sunday's matchup against Green Bay.

The Lions allowed 45 points to the Packers when the teams met at the end of last season, and the questions about Detroit's defense haven't gone away. Adrian Peterson rushed for 171 yards in Minnesota's 34-24 win last weekend.
