Ziggy Ansah had an amazing game against the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving.

PFF credits Ansah with 10 (!!!) QB hurries yesterday and 12 overall pressures. That's unbelievable.— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) November 28, 2014
Ansah's performance was so strong, it thrust him to No. 2 in their overall pass rush productivity rankings for 4-3 DEs, behind only R. Ayers— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) November 28, 2014
- Undrafted rookie Cornelius Lucas faced a tough test in his first career start considering he was matched up against Jared Allen, but he performed exceptionally well.
The Lions gave Lucas little to no help with Allen, but the rookie shined. Gave up one pressure and a cleanup sack not on him.— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) November 28, 2014
- In case you missed this last week, Dominic Raiola and C.J. Mosley were both fined by the NFL for their actions against the New England Patriots. Raiola was docked $10,000 for "illegally clubbing a player," while Mosley was fined $22,050 for his personal foul penalty on a field goal. (Mosley actually gave the Patriots' long snapper a concussion on the play.)
