- The Lions had just 55 snaps on offense. Over the entire year, they averaged 64.8 offensive snaps per game. This marked the second-fewest offensive snaps all season for the Lions.
- Zach Zenner again carried the load for Detroit, with Dwayne Washington only getting a snap on the Lions' odd fourth-down attempt in the first half.
- The Lions' offensive line didn't only play impressively against the Seahawks, but they all managed to stay together in the entire game, and they did it without the help of a sixth offensive linemen in even a single snap.

- The defense faced 73 snaps, their second highest total all year--last week's game against the Packers was the most, at 75. The offense couldn't stay on the field and the defense couldn't get off of it. That's your entire ballgame.
- Detroit packed the box often, going with a three linebacker set over half of the time. DeAndre Levy's 50 snaps were his highest amount since his return from injury.
- The Lions didn't use Adairius Barnes or Crezdon Butler much as their nickel cornerback. Instead, the Lions opted to go safety-heavy, as five different safeties managed to get legitimate playing time, while only Butler saw the field as an occasional nickel corner.
- It's interesting to see that Ezekiel Ansah was more effective as a pass rusher with a limited snap count. His 60 percent of playing time was his lowest contributions in a game he wasn't injured in since Week 7.
