- Compared to previous years, Matthew Stafford went a pretty long time without an interception to start this season.
Stafford goes 70 passes before throwing his first pick. Best start of his career. Previous best was 20 in 2010— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) September 14, 2014
- Following Sunday's game, Cam Newton cleared up his "Donkey Kong" remarks about Ndamukong Suh from earlier in the week. Newton indicated that he was just joking around, and he also praised Suh.
Newton says he plays w/ Lions a lot in video games, racks up sacks against his brother with Suh. Seems the "Donkey Kong" came from that— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) September 14, 2014
Says he respects Suh and it was meant as a compliment of his ability to wreck offensive lines. Should have called him "Wreck it Ralph"— Justin Rogers (@Justin_Rogers) September 14, 2014
- Don Muhlbach has been around for quite a few Lions games.
Today is @Lions long snapper Don Muhlbach's 150th game w/ the club. He joins a list of only 20 players to play 150 career games with Detroit— Eamonn Reynolds (@Eamonn_Reynolds) September 14, 2014
