- Two Detroit Lions players were fined for penalties from last week's game: C.J. Mosley and Nick Fairley.
A couple #Lions fines from last week: Nick Fairley $10,000 for his late hit, C.J. Mosley $7.875 for his clothesline tackle.— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) September 27, 2013
- In case you missed it on Friday, Ndamukong Suh did not receive a fine for the play involving Eric Winston in Week 2, according to Justin Rogers.
- This week's MLive Q&A is with Louis Delmas. It's quite a read.
- It's been a while since the Lions picked off Jay Cutler.
If you're curious, the last #Lion to intercept Chicago QB Jay Cutler: Aaron Berry in 2010.— Michael Rothstein (@mikerothstein) September 27, 2013
- Joique Bell is quite strong.
Update on Joique Bell's leg strength: He said he's maxed out around 700 lbs on squats. #Lions— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) September 27, 2013
- Jim Schwartz told Adrian Peterson after their Week 1 game that the Lions spent a month game-planning for him. That's life as the NFL's best running back in an offense without a real passing threat, I suppose.
- Speaking of the Minnesota Vikings, Christian Ponder is out this week with a rib injury. Matt Cassel will start at quarterback as a result.
- One other Vikings note: They may be interested in trading for Josh Freeman. Good luck with that.
- The Chicago Bears signed former Lions defensive tackle Landon Cohen on Friday.
