Lions still haven't solved their slow starts

DETROIT (AP) Matthew Stafford and Jim Caldwell could offer no easy solutions to the problem that won't go away for the Detroit Lions.

Another slow start forced the Lions to try to come from behind Thursday, and they fell short in a 30-23 loss to Minnesota that likely ended Detroit's chances of winning the NFC North. The Lions trailed 13-0 early, and although they've spent much of the past two seasons pulling off fourth-quarter comebacks, they weren't up to the task this time.

Afterward, Stafford and Caldwell were asked about Detroit's poor starts and what can be done about them.
