- Not only did the Lions make Dwayne Washington inactive for Sunday's game, but the Justin Forsett, who was left active, did not see the field once, neither on special teams nor on the offense.
- Detroit didn't hesitate to give Eric Ebron his normal load of snaps, despite missing the past three games due to injury. Interestingly enough, Clay Harbor, who had been getting the majority of snaps in Ebron's absence, was third in snaps behind Khari Lee.
- The Lions didn't use their sixth offensive lineman formation much at all on Sunday. Cornelius Lucas saw the field on 12 of his 14 snaps because Riley Reiff was temporarily out due to his illness.
|DEFENSIVE END||DEFENSIVE SNAPS||PERCENTAGE||SPECIAL TEAMS SNAPS||PERCENTAGE|
|DEFENSIVE TACKLE||DEFENSIVE SNAPS||PERCENTAGE||SPECIAL TEAMS SNAPS||PERCENTAGE|
|LINEBACKER||DEFENSIVE SNAPS||PERCENTAGE||SPECIAL TEAMS SNAPS||PERCENTAGE|
|CORNERBACK||DEFENSIVE SNAPS||PERCENTAGE||SPECIAL TEAMS SNAPS||PERCENTAGE|
|SAFETY||DEFENSIVE SNAPS||PERCENTAGE||SPECIAL TEAMS SNAPS||PERCENTAGE|
- Ezekiel Ansah finally looks like he's getting a full chunk of snaps again, but that may be more concerning than not. He had no impact on the game and finished with just one tackle.
- Once again, the Lions split their defensive tackle reps almost exactly evenly between their four top players. Strange to me, however, that Khyri Thornton and A'Shawn Robinson got the short end of the stick. They seem to be having much more of an impact than both Stefan Charles and Tyrunn Walker.
- If you thought they may ease Josh Bynes into the lineup, seeing as the Lions signed him less than a week ago, you were wrong. Bynes has assumed the starting role immediately.
- The Lions often went with a three-safety look on Sunday. Both Rafael Bush and Miles Killebrew saw a good portion of snaps. The Lions clearly preferred to have safeties out there over linebackers. Linebackers combined for 127 snaps, while safeties combined for 164.
