By the numbers: Week 15

2: Penalties called on the Lions in their loss to Tampa Bay Sunday. It's the fewest they've had in a game dating back to Carolina on Nov. 18 of last season. Lions head coach Matt Patricia has harped on the penalty issues they've been having this season. Detroit's 102 penalties on the season are still 10th most in the league.

4: The Lions face Denver this week. Broncos second-year wide receiver Courtland Sutton has caught at least four passes in all but two on his games this year. He crossed the 1,000-yard receiving mark (1,019) for the season last week against Kansas City.

10: Touchdown receptions for wide receiver Kenny Golladay through 14 games, which still leads the NFL. He'd be the first Lions receiver to lead the league in touchdown receptions in a season since Calvin Johnson and Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald led the league with 12 apiece back in 2008. Golladay's 1,052 receiving yards on the season rank 10th in the NFL.

15: Lions players currently on the Reserved/Injured list.

17: Drops by Lions pass catchers this season, which ranks in the top 10 for fewest in the league.

48: Yards needed by veteran wide receiver Danny Amendola over Detroit's last two games to match his season-high receiving yards total of 689 set in his second season in the league back in 2010 with the then St. Louis Rams. Amendola had his third 100-yard receiving game of the season last week vs. Tampa Bay.

358.2: Passing yards per game the Lions' defense is allowing at Ford Field this season. That also includes 18 touchdown passes against. On the road, for whatever reason, the Lions have been much better against the pass this season. Opponents are averaging 244.2 passing yards per game with 12 touchdowns. The Lions have played seven games both home and away so far this season.

401.9: Total yards allowed per game by the Lions' defense. Only Arizona (413.1) is allowing more per game.
