Lions Notes: Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson Nominated For Weekly NFL Awards

  • Calvin Johnson's performance on the Lions' scoring drive at the end of the Raiders game is up for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week.
  • Matthew Stafford is a nominee for the FedEx Air Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.
  • Jim Schwartz thinks all 53 players on the roster will be "in the mix" to play this week.
  • The Lions/Raiders game will be shown on NFL Replay on NFL Network tonight at 9:30 p.m.
  • The Super Bowl, Pro Bowl and wild-card games on NBC will be streamed online (legally) and on cell phones in 2012.
  • Mocking The Draft's latest 2012 NFL mock draft has the Lions taking North Carolina linebacker Zach Brown in the first round and Virginia Tech running back David Wilson in the second round. I like Wilson, but another running back this early in the draft? No, thanks.
  • The announcers for Saturday's game between the Lions and Chargers on CBS will be Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf. I know a lot of people aren't huge fans of Dierdorf, but I will take him and Gumbel over the horrendous announcers FOX has stuck Lions fans with this season.
