- Another week, another Detroit Lions record broken by Calvin Johnson: He edged Herman Moore for the most career touchdown receptions (63) in Lions history during Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears.
- Here's another amazing Megatron stat:

- On Sunday, Montell Owens suffered another knee injury. He hurt the same knee that landed him on injured reserve for the first half of the season, and it's unknown right now just how severe this injury is.
- Despite being flagged for a face mask penalty, Ndamukong Suh still got credit for the sack he had on the same play.
- In case you needed a reminder of how awful 2008 was for the Lions...
Huge play by Ndamukong Suh. And DeAndre Levy now has more INTs this yr than the Lions had the entire 2008 season.— John Niyo (@JohnNiyo) November 10, 2013
- Sunday was the first time the Lions scored on their opening offensive possession all season. It was also the first time they didn't start a game with the ball this season, as they decided to defer.
- When the Lions benched Darius Slay on Sunday, they replaced him with Don Carey, who is technically a safety but has played cornerback before as well. Putting Carey in at nickelback allowed the Lions to shift Rashean Mathis back outside.
- Willie Young isn't thrilled with the current definition of roughing the passer.
W. Young on questionable penalties against QBs: "The players need to have a meeting after the season. We need to get that stuff straight."— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) November 10, 2013
- The Jay Cutler injury saga took a weird turn after Sunday's game:
His ankle in a weird place then b/c he grabbed higher. RT @mikecwright: Trestman: Cutler never had discomfort w/ groin. All ankle. Uh Ok.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) November 10, 2013
- Speaking of Cutler, I have to say, my respect for him has gone up quite a bit this season.
Jay Cutler very kind to Lions after the loss, saying "those guys showed a lot of class on their side and handled it well."— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) November 11, 2013
- Brandon Marshall, on the other hand, good luck with that...
Brandon Marshall also said he doesn't like the Lions and can't wait to see them in the playoffs.— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) November 11, 2013
