- ESPN's Field Yates ranked the NFL's top offensive matchup nightmares based on "uncommon physical traits." It should come as no surprise that Calvin Johnson came in at No. 1 on the list since he is the "most physically dominant offensive player regardless of position."
By the way, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (No. 3) and Chicago Bears wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery (No. 5) also made the list.
- Now in Buffalo as the defensive coordinator of the Bills, former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz admitted that he has to prove himself "all over again." Schwartz will get a chance to prove himself all over again to Detroit later this year when the Bills face the Lions in Week 4 of the preseason and Week 5 of the regular season.
- In another video from Reggie Bush's trip to Australia last month, NFL Fan Pass looked at how he compares to players from the National Rugby League.
- The Lions came in at No. 21 in Pro Football Talk's preseason power rankings.
- Jim Caldwell is 22nd in NFL.com's head coach power rankings.
