- Jeremy Ross accounted for a few amazing stats on Sunday by returning a punt and kick for a touchdown. For starters, he became the first Detroit Lions player to return a punt for a touchdown since Eddie Drummond in 2004. He also made some other history:
- This says a lot about how great Ross was and how rough the day was for the Lions offense:

- The Lions' streak of dominant performances by the run defense came to an abrupt end on Sunday.
Eagles have 303 yards rushing today. The Lions had given up 243 yards rushing combined in their last 6 games.— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) December 8, 2013
- This pretty much sums up the defense's performance in general:
DeAndre Levy on the Lions' defense: "It's not fun to lose and go out there and play soft. We just played like crap in the 2nd half."— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) December 8, 2013
- Ziggy Ansah injured his shoulder on Sunday, but Jim Schwartz said after the game that it doesn't look like a long-term injury. Also, Chris Houston injured his right hand and LaAdrian Waddle isn't concerned about the elbow injury he suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Kyle Meinke.
- Aside from saying that he didn't slip in warmups, Reggie Bush declined to talk about the re-aggravation of his calf injury, which forced him to miss Sunday's game.
- 90 touchdowns were scored on Sunday, setting a new NFL record for most TDs in one day of action.
