- The Detroit Lions still don't know how to consistently close out games, as evidenced by this stat:
Five blown 4th quarter leads this season. #Lions— Matt Dery (@dery1051) December 17, 2013
- This just about sums up how much Jim Schwartz mishandled the end of Monday's game from a timeouts standpoint:
- Following the Lions' excellent first drive to open the game, it was all downhill until they scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
After the Lions' TD drive to open the game, their next 8 drives went: Punt, punt, punt, punt, interception, field goal, punt, interception.— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) December 17, 2013
- David Akers kicked off for the Lions for the first time all season on Monday night. It turns out the Lions kept Sam Martin off kickoffs because he got hurt in warmups. Martin was still able to punt, though.
- How about two positive stats from the Lions' loss to the Baltimore Ravens? Here you go:
Stafford passed 4,000 yards passing for a third-straight season on that last drive. #BALvsDET— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) December 17, 2013
Calvin Johnson becomes the first player in NFL history to record 5,000 yards receiving in 3-year span— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) December 17, 2013
- If the season ended today, the Lions would pick 15th in the 2014 NFL Draft.
