  • Eric Ebron has had to deal with a lot of criticism lately over his increasing amount of drops. Tuesday, Ebron faced the critiques:
  • The Lions did a much better job choosing the player to be wired for sound against the Raiders (last week, they chose James Ihedigbo, who only played three defensive snaps). Theo Riddick was mic'd up, and his performance did not disappoint.
  • Calvin Johnson joined former teammate Nate Burleson on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access." They talked about Thanksgiving dinner favorites, trade rumors and Burleson's infamous pizza incident. Watch the entire segment here.
  • To continue his excellent work in the community, Golden Tate has teamed with the Humane Society to help shut down inhumane puppy mills. For more information on the cause, check out this article detailing athletes advocating for more humane forms of pet adoption.
  • On Tuesday, there was a huge rift in the locker room that threatened to tear the team apart: #TeamLionKing
  • There are still tickets available for the Thanksgiving Day game. Purchase them here.
