- Just how unlikely was the Detroit Lions' win on Sunday? This tweet pretty much sums it up:

- Deadspin has a video of the Lions' final drive. (Also at Deadspin is a video of Brian Billick declaring the game over with 1:24 left in the fourth quarter. Oops.)
- After the Lions beat the Dallas Cowboys, Jim Schwartz celebrated with a flying fist pump and then destroyed his headset.
- Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel wrote a great column on Matthew Stafford's game-winning touchdown.
- Stafford deservingly got a lot of praise after Sunday's win.
Schwartz: "We're extremely lucky to have Matthew Stafford at quarterback."— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) October 27, 2013
Reggie Bush on @Staff_9 : "He has the heart of a Lion."— Jennifer Hammond (@HammerFox2) October 27, 2013
Dom Raiola on Matthew Stafford: "Thats a bad mother-effer right there."— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) October 27, 2013
- Stafford became the fastest player in NFL history to reach 15,000 yards passing. He's only played in 53 games and has already thrown for 15,424 yards.
- As noted by Kevin Seifert, 10 of Stafford's 22 NFL wins have involved fourth-quarter comebacks.
- The Lions had Stafford mic'd up for Sunday's game. That video, which will be out later this week, is going to be amazing to watch.
- It should come as no surprise that Calvin Johnson got the game ball after Sunday's win.
- Schwartz had a lot of praise for Chris Houston, who bounced back from being benched last week with a great performance on Sunday.
"Chris Houston played an outstaaaanding game." - Schwartz emphasizing that. #Lions— Brad Galli (@BradGalli) October 27, 2013
Nate Burleson caught passes during warm-ups on Sunday. This is a pretty good indication that he is on track to return after the Lions' bye week.
- When it comes to the Johnson vs. Dez Bryant debate, I think this quote from Burleson is all that needs to be said:
Burleson on Dez Bryant: "... he had a hell of a game today. But you’re not Calvin Johnson. Nobody’s Calvin Johnson."— Carlos Monarrez (@cmonarrez) October 27, 2013
- Ndamukong Suh is planning to have a videoconference with the NFL on Thursday this week to talk about his fines this season.
