The Slanch Report:
Scoring a touchdown is grounds for celebration, as Detroit's Tony Scheffler shows after snagging a pass for a 3rd quarter against the Panthers this past weekend. Opting to pay homage to our corporate overlords, AT&T, Scheffler emulates—pretty damn well—the commercial where a flash mob (ripping off my man Charlie from Improv Everywhere) are supposed to perform in Grand Central Station.

Detroit Lions center Dominic Raiola is a creature of habit.
Two days before every game, Raiola gets his hair cut by a stylist who visits team headquarters. On this particular Tuesday, he received a trim that included the shaving of three stars on the side of his head.
The aesthetic beauty of such a 'do is subjective. But there is no debating the recent ugliness of another custom...
Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson walked out the beginning of Tuesday's practice with trainer, but would not reveal the extent of his injury.
Terrell McClain gets slapped with a personal foul, a 15-yarder, that keeps the Lions' series alive. McClain hit Matthew Stafford after he ran out of bounds near the Lions' sideline. On the next play, Stafford finds Kevin Smith for a gain of 15 yards.

For the second straight week, Matthew Stafford wore protective gloves, but this time got enough grip on the offense Sunday to deliver the Lions one of the most memorable wins of his career.
Matthew Stafford threw his fifth touchdown pass to Brandon Pettigrew with 2:32 left to help the Detroit Lions rally to beat the Carolina Panthers 49-35 Sunday.
Pathers kickoff returner Kealoha Pilares takes the ball 102 yards for the score. Another blown opportunity for the Lions' special teams. Remember, the Lions gave up a punt return to Devin Hester last weekend in Chicago.
