Nate Burleson felt good enough going into his ninth NFL season that he predicted he’d have the best year of his career.

He was over the ankle injuries that bothered him last fall in his first season with the Lions, and with a healthy Matthew Stafford at quarterback and defenses always tilted towards Calvin Johnson, Burleson figured he was in line for plenty of work.

A bye week didn’t allow for much movement in the power rankings for the Detroit Lions, but in a few polls the team moved up or down a couple spots by default.

Jay Cutler admitted Wednesday that the Detroit Lions got somewhat chirpy in the first meeting between the teams, but attributed it to being a “Monday night game for them, first time in a long time. So they were excited.”
