- Matthew Stafford broke the Bengals' streak of 20 straight games without allowing an opposing quarterback to throw for 300 or more yards. (Stafford finished with 357 yards and 3 touchdowns.)
- As noted by Michael Rothstein, Kris Durham has now caught at least 3 passes in four straight games. On Sunday, he had 5 catches for 41 yards.
- Corey Hilliard ended up taking the blame for the Lions' blocked field goal, but Dylan Gandy apparently didn't think it was all on him.
- Why didn't Jim Schwartz challenge the return of the blocked field goal, which included an illegal forward pass? He was apparently told by the officials that he couldn't. Way to go, NFL!
- Sam Martin explained after the game what happened on his awful punt that helped set up Cincinnati's game-winning field goal.
- This pretty much sums it up:
C Raiola: "This one hurt ... This should hurt. There are no moral victories here anymore… We are too good of a team to do that." #CINvsDET— Detroit Lions (@DetroitLionsNFL) October 20, 2013
- I really wish someone would have gotten video of this:
Nick Fairley, all 300-plus pounds of him, just dunked the football over the crossbar. Gravity-defying— Chris McCosky (@cmccosky) October 20, 2013
- Chris Greenwood elected to re-sign with the Lions' practice squad over offers from the Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles, per MLive.
- Ndamukong Suh has reportedly been invited to the NFL's offices to talk about the fines he's received this year. A couple years ago, Suh took part in a similar meeting, but clearly not much has changed. Personally, I'd tell the NFL to shove it this time around if I'm Suh.
