  • Dominic Raiola was nearly ineligibly downfield on the Lions' game-winning touchdown pass. Earlier this week, he made some interesting comparisons to nearly committing a penalty and negating the touchdown.
  • Matthew Stafford has the third-most passing yards in NFL history for a quarterback in his first 30 starts, according to Matt Barnhart. Stafford trails only Kurt Warner and Dan Marino.
  • Stafford is one of only two quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for at least 350 yards in four consecutive games. If Stafford puts up at least 350 yards again this week, he will have the record to himself (right now he shares it with Drew Brees).
  • Last Sunday, Jason Hanson became the first player in NFL history to play 21 seasons with one team, according to Dave Hogg.
  • Here are a couple more interesting stats from Matt Barnhart:
  • Rams offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, who was carted off the field during last Sunday's game with a neck injury, was a full participant in practice on Thursday. It's good to see the injury was nothing serious.
  • The Chicago Bears have signed former Lions offensive tackle Jonathan Scott.
