- On Monday, the Detroit Lions officially decided to keep rookie wide receiver TJ Jones on the PUP list. He had been practicing for the past few weeks, but now his season is officially over.

Golden Tate was mic'd up on Sunday.
Calvin Johnson is the Lions' nominee for the inaugural NFL Sportsmanship Award.
Matthew Stafford is one of the nominees for the FedEx Air Player of Week 14.
- Remember Nick Fairley's 2012 DUI? It still hasn't been resolved from a legal standpoint, and Fairley now has a February 2015 trial date.
- The announcers for Sunday's game between the Lions and Minnesota Vikings are going to be Chris Myers and Ronde Barber (yes, they are announcing yet another Lions game).
