Lions notes: More on Sunday's win over Vikings

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's win over the Minnesota Vikings.

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports
  • Ndamukong Suh set a new Detroit Lions record for career sacks by a defensive tackle on Sunday. Suh later added a second sack, giving him 30.5 for his career.

  • As a team, the Lions tallied eight sacks for the first time in a long, long time.
  • George Johnson, who played a big part in the Lions' pass rush against the Minnesota Vikings, had a pretty great Sunday.
  • I mean, wow:
  • Theo Riddick left Sunday's game after aggravating his hamstring injury, but he's already planning to play next week.

  • Reggie Bush, who was inactive on Sunday because of an ankle injury, is also planning to play next week (against his former team, the New Orleans Saints).

  • It's time for our weekly section of depressing stats about the Lions' awful kicking game.
  • Part of the problem is that the Lions are stalling drives short of the red zone at a pretty alarming rate.
  • On a positive note, Sam Martin's reaction to Matt Prater's one made field goal on Sunday was pretty great.
  • What happened to the Lions' offensive line?

  • According to Mike O'Hara, Sunday was the Lions' first outdoor road game against the Vikings since 1981.

  • Ryan Broyles is not happy with his lack of playing time, and I don't blame him one bit.
