Lions notes: Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford, more

Gregory Shamus

Lions notes looks at Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and much more.

  • These three stats about Calvin Johnson are just amazing:
  • Take notes, Dez Bryant:
  • Peter King wrote a column on Matthew Stafford and the Lions' final drive against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Stafford is on the verge of breaking the Lions' all-time passing record.

  • According to Ian Rapoport, Ziggy Ansah's ankle injury is "considered minor."

  • Chris Houston got the Lions' defensive game ball for his performance on Sunday.

  • Why didn't the Lions use Joseph Fauria down by the goal line on Sunday? Jim Schwartz explained the thinking on Monday:
  • Schwartz also clarified that the Lions didn't bench Micheal Spurlock. Instead, he claims Spurlock was simply the odd man out with the Lions having eight offensive linemen active, although he declined to say who will be the returner going forward.

  • It turns out that Schwartz's daughter left Sunday's game early because she had a soccer game.

  • It's not often that teams turn the ball over four times and win anyway, but the Lions did exactly that on Sunday.
