- Going into Sunday's game, the Green Bay Packers were favored by around 7.5 points. After news broke that Calvin Johnson was out, the spread went up to 10 points. (The Packers covered, as they won by 13 points.)
- Apparently Matthew Stafford knew on Saturday that Johnson wasn't going to play.
- Johnson's injury, by the way, is different than the one he dealt with last year.
- It's been a couple years since the Detroit Lions struggled to move the ball as much as they did on Sunday.

- Coming into Week 5, Stafford had only been sacked 3 times all season. He was sacked 5 total times on Sunday alone.
- Clay Matthews suffered a fractured thumb injury during Sunday's game.
- Johnson gave his former high school new cleats last week.
- Defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith, who was released by the Lions last week, landed on the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad.
- To wrap up our series from last week, here's a look at the approval ratings from the polls we did (votes were taken before Sunday's game): 74% for Jim Schwartz, 87% for Martin Mayhew, 54% for Scott Linehan and 78% for Gunther Cunningham.
