STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES — WR Mike Thomas returns to Jacksonville after just a few days in Detroit. Jaguars traded Thomas to Detroit on Tuesday for undisclosed draft pick. Thomas caught 13 passes for 80 yards with Jacksonville, but had clearly fallen out of favor with new coaching staff. After leading team in receptions in 2010 and 2011, Thomas was behind Cecil Shorts III, Justin Blackmon and Laurent Robinson on depth chart and had been stripped of role as punt returner. … Lions 1-3 on road but have been in every game. … Matthew Stafford has thrown for 1,843 yards, with 17 TDs and one INT, in last six games against AFC teams. … RB Mikel Leshoure has 429 yards from scrimmage in five career starts. … Calvin Johnson has 29 receptions for 605 yards and five TDs in last four games against AFC teams. … Jaguars 0-3 at home this season and have been blown out in all three games, losing by combined score of 95-20. … PK Josh Scobee has made 20 consecutive field goals, one shy of breaking franchise record he shares with Mike Hollis. … Cecil Shorts, coming off 116-yard receiving game at Green Bay, trying to become first Jaguars WR with consecutive 100-yard games since Dennis Northcutt in 2008. … QB Blaine Gabbert has thrown for 413 yards and two touchdowns in last two games. He had career-high 303 yards passing last week against Packers. … Rashad Jennings, starting in place of injured star Maurice Jones-Drew, totaled 115 yards from scrimmage against Packers. … DE Jeremy Mincey, playing better with John Chick, Austen Lane and George Selvie back from injuries, looking for third consecutive game with a sack.
