12:57 p.m. -- The 2-7 Lions are coming off a huge upset of the Packers. Meanwhile, the 4-5 Raiders are still licking their wounds from last week's 30-14 goring at the hands of the Vikings, who ran all over Oakland's secondary ... at one point, allowing A.P. to set the O.Co turf ablaze with an 80-yard TD.

1:43 p.m. -- Marquette King punts it away, and the Lions will begin within their own 10.

1:44 p.m. -- I didn't even mention Aldon Smith getting banned a year, have I? By the way, Crabtree was DEFINITELY in bounds on that last play.
