- Golden Tate has been on a roll as of late for the Detroit Lions, but he has been especially lethal against the New Orleans Saints:
- Tate is also an extremely successful human being off of the field. The NFL Players Association named him the Week 12 Community MVP.

- Matthew Stafford is up for the FedEx Air Player of the Week. Vote for him here or follow these Twitter instructions (or do both!):
- In case you missed it, cornerback Johnthan Banks was claimed by the Bears, but he wasn’t the only player waived by the Lions that was snatched by another team:

- Brandon Copeland was “Wired for Sound” this week and complained a lot about the pregame music.
