Lions know winning is the way to get respect back

The Detroit Lions have opened themselves up to being criticized.

Since barely beating St. Louis in Week 1, Detroit has dropped three straight games.

That isn't what anybody envisioned.

The Lions began the season with high hopes with most of their players back from last year's team that broke the franchise's 11-season postseason drought.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford says the Lions didn't get too excited about last season's 5-0 start and won't get too down about the current skid.

Detroit will have a hard time avoiding a 1-5 record with two tough road games coming up against Philadelphia and Chicago, teams that are tied for the lead in their divisions.
