Strange game for Lions, Stafford

Monday night's game marked just the second time since the start of last season that Detroit didn't trail in the fourth quarter. With the Lions ahead, they finished with more designed rushes than dropbacks for the first time since Week 14 of 2013. Likewise, Matthew Stafford finished with the fewest passing yards (122) he's ever had in a win, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

ESPN Stats & Info

Lions finally finding effective pass rush?

The Lions' standard pass rush has allowed nearly 2 yards per dropback less this season than in the last two seasons.

Lions snap counts show a time-share Monday night for Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick and still a 2-to-1 ratio for Kenny Golladay to TJ Jones. Defensively, Anthony Zettel played more snaps than Ezekiel Ansah -- but Ansah was a game-wrecker last night.

Here's a big stat from Stats & Info: For the first time since 2013, Lions had more designed runs (29) than dropbacks (27) in a game.
