  • We all know the Detroit Lions are a pass-first offense, but through one week of the 2017 season, no teams lined up in three wide receiver formations more often than the Lions (obviously, there are two “Monday Night Football” games still left):

  • The Lions also went no-huddle more than any other offense. They went with the hurry-up on nearly half of their offensive snaps.

  • Golden Tate appeared to jam his finger on a Matthew Stafford pass on Sunday. Postgame he was wearing a splint on his finger, but he didn’t seem too worried about it in the locker room. “Just hurt it a little bit,” Tate said, while admitting he hadn’t seen team doctor’s yet.

  • Matthew Stafford was the second-most accurate passer in Week 1 (through Sunday):

  • Glover Quin’s interception on Sunday not only helped the Lions pull off a win, but it also resulted in $5,000 given to Houston relief funds. He also pledged to donate an additional $100 for every tackle he made, bringing his total contribution to $5,500:

  • This cameraman is a real pro, but you may see him on the injury report this week:

  • Golden Tate sported these awesome cleats this weekend:

  • Believe it or not, it looks like Dwayne Washington may not have lost the kick return job after his blunder on Sunday. “Don’t expect not to see him back there again,” Caldwell said during his Monday presser.
