Lions notes: More on Sunday's win over Bears

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears, including another team record that has been broken by Calvin Johnson.

  • 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...
  • 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.
  • The Jay Cutler injury saga took a weird turn after Sunday's game: Yeah, I don't buy that for a second.

  • Speaking of Cutler, I have to say, my respect for him has gone up quite a bit this season.
  • Brandon Marshall, on the other hand, good luck with that...
