One day after his brother, Martellus Bennett, made a rather outlandish comment about Jay Cutler, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett might have one-upped him.
After his team's controversial win over the Detroit Lions, Bennett went in on opposing quarterback Matthew Stafford ... in a rather odd way.

NFL Week 15 -- Ravens at Lions
The Baltimore Ravens and Detroit Lions enter Monday with identical records, but not-so-identical situations. Detroit is tied atop -- and leads by tiebreaker -- the NFC North. Baltimore is second in the AFC North, tied for the conference's final playoff spot. Moreover, Detroit seems to be playing the most difficult of its final three games this weekend, while Baltimore's tall task is one of three on the way in. Which team stays above .500?

He linked up with Calvin Johnson -- who finished with 329 receiving yards, second most in NFL history -- to reach the 1. Then, after telling the world he would spike the ball, Stafford decided to leap the line and send his team to 5-3. Will Detroit keep pushing toward the postseason? What does the rest of the NFC look like?
