Lions notes: More on Sunday's loss to Eagles

New, comments

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Rich Schultz
  • Jeremy Ross accounted for a few amazing stats on Sunday by returning a punt and kick for a touchdown. For starters, he became the first Detroit Lions player to return a punt for a touchdown since Eddie Drummond in 2004. He also made some other history:
  • This says a lot about how great Ross was and how rough the day was for the Lions offense:
  • The Lions' streak of dominant performances by the run defense came to an abrupt end on Sunday.
  • This pretty much sums up the defense's performance in general:
  • Ziggy Ansah injured his shoulder on Sunday, but Jim Schwartz said after the game that it doesn't look like a long-term injury. Also, Chris Houston injured his right hand and LaAdrian Waddle isn't concerned about the elbow injury he suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to Kyle Meinke.

  • Aside from saying that he didn't slip in warmups, Reggie Bush declined to talk about the re-aggravation of his calf injury, which forced him to miss Sunday's game.

  • 90 touchdowns were scored on Sunday, setting a new NFL record for most TDs in one day of action.
