  • The Detroit Lions had Rob Sims, DeAndre Levy and David Akers go out for the coin toss for their game against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Prior to Thursday's game, Akers made field goals from 56 and 57 yards out, according to Tim Twentyman.

  • Montell Owens wasn't ruled out for Thursday's game, but he didn't end up playing. (He missed practice earlier in the week, so his absence was likely related to an injury.)

  • Deadspin has video of the streaker who invaded the Lions/Browns game and was shoved down twice by Joique Bell as he made his way across the field.

  • This is just a depressing stat:
  • Reggie Bush got the ball eight different times during the Lions' first scoring drive of the game, and he accounted for 34 of their 47 yards on the possession, according to Chris McCosky.

  • For those wondering about why the official seemed so nervous when announcing penalties, it turns out he doesn't normally have that responsibility.
