- The Detroit Lions only had three drives in the second half on Sunday, but they made the most of them to keep Aaron Rodgers off the field as much as possible:
14 plays, 74 yards, 7:00 (fumble)
10 plays, 75 yards, 5:53 (touchdown)
12 plays, 29 yards, 6:54 (end of game)
- How about that Lions secondary?
- As noted by Josh Katzenstein, Stephen Tulloch leads all defensive players in the NFL with 131 consecutive games played. Unfortunately, that streak is going to come to an end this week after he tore his ACL on Sunday.
- DeAndre Levy recorded 10 tackles, one tackle for loss, two pass defenses and a safety despite dealing with a pretty uncomfortable helmet situation after Tulloch left the game.
Levy on making calls: "The headset wasn’t working very well, the volume was off, the helmet didn’t have air in it. My chin strap was wrong."— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) September 21, 2014
- Much like Thanksgiving last season, the Lions' defensive line entered the field as a group on Sunday. It turns out that Nick Fairley was the one behind that idea.

- If Don Muhlbach ever gets hurt, it looks like Jed Collins will be the one who steps in at long snapper.
