- Eric Ebron was tagged with two penalties against the Titans, both of which took touchdowns off the board. After the game, he was understandably mad.

- And then WWE Superstar The Miz posted his fantasy football score:
Yup he's losing https://t.co/VYE7Jf7t8O pic.twitter.com/AUb2OAFUGP— The Miz (@mikethemiz) September 19, 2016
To which Ebron responded:

Ebron is, of course, referring to his own touchdown that was nullified by a poor pass interference call—as seen above. The salt is strong with this one.
- Ebron wasn’t the only one miffed by the officiating. Former Detroit Lions guard Geoff Schwartz took notice:
Enough with the flags in Detroit. At some point you have to let them play.— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) September 18, 2016
He was especially upset about the non-call when Matthew Stafford’s lower leg was rushed into:
Damn that's a dirty hit on Stafford. Dude crawled into his lower legs. Should be a flag— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) September 18, 2016
- Moving away from penalties, Adrian Peterson suffered what looked like a major injury last night against the Packers. The injury was bad enough that Barry Sanders sent him his well wishes:
Sending my prayers to @AdrianPeterson tonight.— Barry Sanders (@BarrySanders) September 19, 2016
It does look like Peterson is walking on the injured leg now.
- This is one very big positive to take from the Lions’ first two weeks of the season:
Something I didn't think I'd say two weeks into the season: The Lions are averaging 5.4 yards per carry, third in the league— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) September 19, 2016
- Here’s your post-game press conference round up: Jim Caldwell, Matthew Stafford, Glover Quin, Golden Tate, Darius Slay.
- The Lions cheerleaders made their debut on Sunday. Here are some pictures.
- This is important to keeps thing in perspective after the Lions fell to 1-1:
As of tonight only two teams are 2-0 in the NFC. (Giants & Vikings) Eagles (1-0) vs. Bears on Monday night football.— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) September 19, 2016
