Highlights from Lions coach Jim Schwartz's Monday news conference. On the excitement on the plane trip home: "Go to work on San Diego. Obviously we were pleased to get the win and excited about it, but it's a long trip back, it's a late game and we didn't have any champagne."
So he's back after serving his time for the Thanksgiving incident, and the Lions are glad he is. But what kind of welcome can Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh expect from the Raiders when he returns to the field today in Oakland?
While Detroit got caught up in another high-scoring game, it got touchdowns from three different receivers.
The Lions did it again. They came back from ANOTHER double digit deficit to beat the Oakland Raiders on their home turf. TEAM SWAG is back. Once again the Lions proved that no lead is safe against them until the clock strikes 0.
With the ball on the 2 yard line in the Black hole and Raider nation on it’s feet screaming for his head on a platter, Matthew Stafford calmly adjusted...

Lions face 3rd and 2. Stafford finds Megatron crossing the middle with a 2 yard yard pass...who then adds 21 in YAC! Lions at midfield!
2nd and 10...BLITZ...SACK. Stafford loses 11. UGH.
3rd and forver, Stafford overthrows Megatron. Would have been short, anywayA promising drive was killed off by the Raiders sack.
But a nice punt by the Aussie, Ben Graham...
FYI: Stafford is over 4K passing yards on the season.
Via Tim Twenyman on Twitter:
Stafford over 4,000 yards on season. He's 2nd youngest to have 4,000 and 30 touchdowns in same season. The youngest was Dan Marino in 1984.
I often forget Stafford is only 23. He's going to get better...and he's pretty damn good already.
Lions start the 4th by converting on 3rd down...
