Making the NFL playoffs after a 0-2 start to the season is very difficult, as two-time defending NFC champion Seattle has heard over and over recently. And even though Seattle finally dented the win column last week, it can take another big step toward overcoming the odds stacked against 0-2 teams in the Lions-Seahawks Monday Night Football game.

ESPN will broadcast the Lions-Seahawks as the Week 4 MNF game beginning at 8:30 p.m. Eastern from CenturyLink Field in Seattle. USA Today research shows only 4 percent of NFL teams who start 0-2 have made the playoffs since 2009.

Detroit also started the season 0-2, then took another step backward against its playoff hopes by losing last Sunday at home against Denver, 24-12. With a 0-3 start in the books, an upset win in the Lions-Seahawks game is almost a necessity for Detroit. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has a 5-to-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio through three games, and his job will not be any easier in the Lions-Seahawks game against the powerful Seattle secondary.

Meanwhile Seattle will enter the Lions-Seahawks game on a roll. Seattles defense overwhelmed Chicago last Sunday, and the Seahawks picked up their first win of the season at home, 26-0. Chicago gained only 146 total yards in the loss.

The biggest question mark for Seattle entering the Lions-Seahawks game will be the health of Marshawn Lynch. The superstar running back did not start against Chicago because of a leg injury then carried just five times for 14 yards before leaving the game for good. Thomas Rawls rushed for 104 yards in place of Lynch. Lynch will have one more day than usual of recovery time because the Lions and Seahawks will play on Monday, so he may be able to recover in time to play against Detroit.

Tight end Jimmy Graham also will enter the Lions-Seahawks game on a roll, as he had his best game with his new team last Sunday, catching seven passes for 83 yards and a score for Seattle.

The Lions and Seahawks last met in the 2012 regular season when Detroit won at home, 28-24, behind 352 yards passing from Stafford, including the game-winning 1-yard TD pass with 20 seconds to play.

That Detroit victory in the 2012 Lions-Seahawks game came in Seattle quarterback Russell Wilsons first season as an NFL quarterback, so the Detroit defense will see a different Wilson in Mondays Lions-Seahawks game, as Wilson now has the experience of two Super Bowl appearances under his belt, including one Super Bowl title.

Seattle leads the all-time Lions-Seahawks series, 7-5. Detroit last won in Seattle in 1999.
