- Matt Barnhart tweeted out some great stats about Sunday's win. The first: The Lions tied the NFL record for the biggest road comeback and the franchise record for the biggest overall comeback by rallying from a 24-point deficit on Sunday.
- The Lions are on a five-game road winning streak for the first time in their history.
- This is the fifth time the Lions have started 4-0 in franchise history. They previously got off to a 4-0 start in 1980, 1956, 1939 and 1934.
- Overall, the Lions are on an eight-game winning streak, which they hadn't done since 1953-54.
- Michael Signora also posted a few great stats on Twitter yesterday. The first: Calvin Johnson is the first player in NFL history to record two touchdown receptions in each of the first four games of the season.
- The Lions are the fifth team since 1990 to begin 4-0 just one season after starting 0-4.
- One more: The Lions are the first team in NFL history to win back-to-back games by way of comebacks of 20 points or more.

- The Lions won eight of 55 games from Week 7 in 2007 to Week 13 in 2010. Since then they have won eight straight games.
- According to Dave Birkett, Jim Schwartz dedicated Sunday's win to Mike Heimerdinger, who died on Friday. Schwartz worked with Heimerdinger in Tennessee.
- Also according to Dave Birkett, Johnson is the first Lions receiver to haul in a touchdown pass in four straight games in the same season since Herman Moore did it in 1998.
- Matt Bowen took another look at just how great Johnson is in the red zone and why he presents such a challenge to defenses.
- Terence Newman had this to say about Johnson: "It's not every day you play a guy who could play power forward for the Pistons."
- ESPN's Michael Smith had one of the funniest tweets I saw on Sunday:
You know, Roy Williams' most significant contribution to the National Football League is nicknaming Calvin Johnson "Megatron."
- Yet another example of why Joe Buck is such a terrible announcer: He didn't even know what down it was at the end of the Lions-Cowboys game on Sunday.
