Rookie sackers: Lions rookies have now combined for 13.0 sacks this season, establishing a new single-season franchise record for combined sacks from rookies thanks to defensive lineman Aidan Hutchinson (7.0), Houston (5.0) and linebacker Malcolm Rodriguez (1.0). – Tim Twentyman
Welcome back: In just his second game back after more than a year off rehabbing a torn Achilles, defensive lineman Romeo Okwara notched four tackles (two solo), 2.0 sacks, two quarterback hits and two tackles for loss. It was his third career multi-sack game.
The Lions have had four different players produce a game with at least 2.0 sacks this season. With Okwara, Hutchinson, Houston and John Cominsky, defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn can be pretty versatile with his pass-rush combinations up front. – Tim Twentyman
