  • Sunday's game marked Matthew Stafford's 84th career start for the Detroit Lionstying a franchise record with Greg Landry. Assuming Stafford's hand injury doesn't hold him out of next week's game in London, he will break the record against the Kansas City Chiefs.
  • Your daily reminder that the offensive line is a dumpster fire:
  • Just how bad was the Lions' offensive drought in the middle of the Vikings game? Very bad:
  • The Lions had a familiar face in the locker room post-game: No word on whether Raiola has signed a contract yet.
  • Should the Lions have challenged Calvin Johnson's catch late in the game?

    Hard to say. The ball is incredibly close to the goal line, but I have a hard time believing it would be overturned by replay. In the end, I think Jim Caldwell did the right thing by saving a much-needed timeout. The Lions should have absolutely been able to score from there with three chances, anyway.
  • Former Detroit Pistons coach Flip Saunders passed away on Sunday. Detroit Bad Boys and Canis Hoopus have respectful tributes of Saunders' life and career.
