There's a growing sense of urgency in Detroit now that the Lions are off to an 0-3 start.

"There was no one to blame for it," Lions wide receiver Golden Tate said, per ESPN's Michael Rothstein. "It's a collective effort, 100 percent, but it's got to change. It's got to change quick."

But, in reality, things may not change any time soon.

The Lions play the Seattle Seahawks on the road next Monday night. The Seahawks won their first game of the season on Sunday and could be on the verge of a big run as defenders of back-to-back NFC Championships.

After that, the Lions play the Arizona Cardinals, who look like one of the best teams in the league. The Cardinals are 3-0 and have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 126-49 so far this season.

Detroit may not be favored to win a game until Week 6, when they host the hapless Chicago Bears. And since it's an NFC North clash, even that game is far from a guaranteed victory.
