Lions Notes: Cliff Avril Named NFC Defensive Player Of The Week

  • Lions defensive end Cliff Avril was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Broncos.
  • Here's an amazing stat from Adam Schefter: Five teams (the Lions are one of them) this season have already won as many or more games than they did in all of 2010.
  • Tim Tebow was not offended by Stephen Tulloch "Tebowing" after a sack last Sunday. Tebow was more upset with the fact that he allowed himself to get sacked.
  • Ndamukong Suh talked a bit on Wednesday about his meeting with Roger Goodell
  • Some of Stefan Logan's fair catch issues from last Sunday's game were apparently related to the sun being in his eyes.
  • SB Nation's Jon Bois ranked the Thanksgiving matchup between the Lions and Packers as the best game on the second half of the NFL schedule.
  • Shutdown Corner recently chatted with Barry Sanders.
  • Forbes took a look at the best and worst NFL owners based on winning percentage and change in value. Lions owner William Clay Ford came in at No. 32 out of 32.
  • Calvin Johnson is on Peter King's midseason All-Pro team.
  • After starting the season 0-3 and being blown out in their first two games, the Chiefs have won four in a row and are now tied for first in the AFC West. I definitely did not see that coming after the Lions blew them out in Week 2.
  • Former Lions quarterback Erik Kramer's 18-year-old son died on Sunday.
