Lions notes: More on Thursday's win over Patriots

Lions notes looks at Thursday's preseason win over the New England Patriots.

Gregory Shamus
  • The Detroit Lions' "captains" on Thursday night were Brandon Pettigrew, Louis Delmas and John Wendling.

  • This is a pretty good summation of Delmas' night:
  • Willie Young was benched by Jim Schwartz following his stupid taunting penalty.

  • Tony Scheffler celebrated his touchdown reception by staring directly into the camera. Ahhhh...

  • Joseph Fauria celebrated his touchdown reception by emulating Christian Fauria, who is his uncle. Christian was in attendance as one of the New England Patriots' announcers, and the Faurias got pictures on the field before the game. That had to have been pretty cool for their family.

  • The Lions' second-team offensive line on Thursday featured Dylan Gandy at right guard and LaAdrian Waddle at right tackle. Waddle received a lot of praise after the game, and he really seems to be coming on strong for the Lions.

  • The Lions' starters on the offensive line, by the way, were LT Riley Reiff, LG Rob Sims, C Dominic Raiola, RG Larry Warford and RT Jason Fox.

  • This is pretty remarkable:
  • Lions fans really wanted to see Tim Tebow play on Thursday, but the Patriots didn't oblige them.
  • Chris Greenwood made his NFL debut on Thursday.
