Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints.

  • This is going to be amazing to watch:
  • Matthew Stafford is on the verge of breaking another franchise passing record.
  • Stafford's tackle on his second interception turned out to be pretty important.
  • Golden Tate set two more career highs on Sunday.
  • Corey Fuller's game-winning touchdown was actually the first TD of his NFL career.

  • An audible by Glover Quin and James Ihedigbo helped lead to the Lions' key interception late in the fourth quarter.
  • The Lions absolutely shut down Drew Brees at the end of Sunday's game.
  • Carlos Monarrez reports that Brandon Pettigrew limped to the X-ray room following Sunday's game. During the game, Kyle Meinke reported that trainers were looking at Pettigrew's right leg and ankle, so it appears another Lions tight end may be injured.

  • Sam Martin deserves some love for the game he had on Sunday.
  • You're not wrong, Matt Prater.
  • Amazingly, Sunday's game was the Lions' first all season without a missed field goal. It's been a pretty rough year for their kickers:
