Lions notes: More on Sunday's win over Jets

Lions notes looks at various tidbits from Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Ron Antonelli
  • On the game-clinching naked bootleg, Matthew Stafford apparently called his own number.
  • The return of James Ihedigbo allowed the Detroit Lions to be a bit more flexible with their secondary.
  • Golden Tate tied his career high in catches on Sunday with eight total against the New York Jets. Even though Calvin Johnson didn't do much, his mere presence helped make that happen:
  • When Johnson doesn't contribute much statistically, things typically don't go well for the Lions. That wasn't the case on Sunday, though.
  • I could get used to this:
  • When the Lions were down by the goal line, they brought in Travis Swanson as an extra blocker who was also an eligible receiver.

  • Sunday was actually the first time the Lions wore their road jerseys during the 2014 regular season.
