Lions notes: More on Thursday's win over Packers

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Thursday's win over the Green Bay Packers.

  • The Detroit Lions dominated the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving, to say the very least. Don't believe me? Take a look at these stats:
  • The Lions' run defense was its usual dominant self on Thursday.
  • During introductions, the Lions' defensive line took the field together rather than as individuals.

  • As expected, Packers offensive lineman Josh Sitton was a topic of conversation following the Lions' win.
  • Here's what Sitton had to say after the game:
  • Calvin Johnson broke Jerry Rice's record for the most yards receiving over the course of three seasons.

  • With another interception on Thursday, DeAndre Levy now leads the NFL with 6 picks on the season.

  • Levy was none too pleased with the flag he received for unnecessary roughness during Thursday's game.
  • Dominic Raiola played in his 200th career game on Thursday.

  • FOX's Galloping Gobbler award went to Reggie Bush, who had a nice turnaround after his early fumble. The Lions, by the way, gave their game balls to Raiola, Jeremy Ross and the defensive line, per Dave Birkett.

  • Speaking of Bush, Jim Schwartz had a funny comment about sticking with him despite the fumble at the start of the game:
