Just before kickoff, Lions wide receiver Golden Tate took a look into the stands.
He was stunned to find a lot of empty seats.
And he found a whole lot more of them starting in the third quarter of the Lions’ 42-17 loss on Sunday afternoon at Ford Field.
That prompted Tate to go on a rant — albeit, calmly and collectedly — about the fan base, which he feels needs to be behind the players more than ever.

“You know, I’m the first one to say I love our fans. I think our fans are amazing and they’ve been patient for a long time,” Tate said.
“We have a lot of confidence in our fan base and we can’t do that without our fan base,” Tate said. “We expect them to be with us a little bit better next week. We’ve got a chance to still be special. I know that we’re not playing the type of football that we want to play right now, but we need our fans. We need them.”
