Detroit Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh had no interest in talking about his infamous Thanksgiving day stomp when he returned to practice on Wednesday after serving a two-game suspension, but there was an interesting twist on the airwaves over 2,000 miles away from the Lions practice facility.

Trying to maintain their playoff position in the NFC, the Detroit Lions are eager to welcome one of their top players back to the field.

The Oakland Raiders are looking for anything to help their chances of remaining in the AFC playoff picture.

Coming off of the Bears’ win over the San Diego Chargers, even the most pessimistic Chicago fans thought that the good guys were a lock for a wild card spot. With tie-breakers over two of our biggest competitors for the two spots – the Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons – and riding high on a five-game win streak, it looked to be a sure thing.

Brandon was cool throughout the event, having a good time with just about everyone who came through the long autograph line. He seemed engaged and relaxed, very comfortable with his fans. I asked him why, unlike a lot of his teammates, he wasn’t active on social mediums like Facebook and Twitter.
