- Is Graham Glasgow your new starting left guard? Laken Tomlinson left the game early with an injury, but appeared to be fine after a quick lookover by the team's doctors. Glasgow took over for the majority of the game, but Tomlinson did end up coming back. Here's what Jim Caldwell had to say after the game:
"We had talked about it and decided to do it earlier in the week. We wanted to get the young guy a little bit of the opportunity. Particularly right now, you know, we’ve had injuries here and there, so we wanted to try to get his feet wet a little bit, so we put him in and out. I’m not certain how he did, to be honest with you."
- The Lions surprisingly used Clay Harbor the most at tight end despite the fact he was added just five days prior to the game. At 38 percent of snaps he didn't play very much, but Khari Lee and Cole Wick combined for just 16 snaps on offense.
- Instead, the Lions decided to use a sixth offensive linemen for a good chunk of the game. The lucky lineman was Corey Robinson, who played for nearly one-third of the game.

- Kerry Hyder played a whopping 87 percent of snaps. That's an incredible workload for someone who barely made the team. In comparison, Ezekiel Ansah played just 71 percent of snaps in the first game of the season. That's a great accomplishment for Hyder to last the entire game, but that's also a workload he shouldn't continue to carry throughout the season. The Lions need reinforcements.
- One of those reinforcements was Armonty Bryant, who saw a healthy 31 percent of snaps in his first game as a Lion.
- Antwione Williams appears to have been demoted in favor of Thurston Armbrister. Neither has been very impressive over the past two weeks, so I would expect the snap distribution to continue to fluctuate over the next few weeks.
- Johnson Bademosi saw his first significant play at cornerback as he took a good portion of Nevin Lawson's snaps. Lawson was battling an illness this week, so it's hard to say whether this was a benching or simply giving Lawson some extra rest.
- At safety, Tavon Wilson reassumed his role as starter, but what is more interesting is how Miles Killebrew saw the field just as often as Rafael Bush. Killebrew struggled with the larger role, but it'll be interesting to see if he continues to get looks in the Lions' three-safety look.
