Coaching the Dolphins and eating crap is basically the same thing for Dan Campbell

The Dolphins soon-to-be-fired interim head coach has a really gross way of thinking about losing.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

DON'T EAT CRAP: Soon-to-be fired Dolphins coach Dan Campbell made it very clear that "there's nothing fun about having crap in your mouth."

GHOST TOUCHDOWNS: The Saints scored three TDs on one drive and the Lions called 4 timeouts and none of it mattered. Even when the Saints score touchdowns, they don't score touchdowns. (Also, the Lions exploited a neat loophole in the NFL's playbook. Perhaps by accident).

LIONS WIN: 3 things we learned from Detroit's 35-27 road win. The Lions nearly gave the game away to the Saints, but they held on to win a game that has no impact on the playoffs. Matthew Stafford was nearly flawless. Watch Theo Riddick break ankles.

DANCE CONTEST: Matthew Stafford shocks MNF crew with a near-perfect Ray Lewis dance. Nobody saw this coming and Stafford was pretty dang good! Speaking of Ray Lewis ... Detroit’s Devin Taylor showed up in a T-Rex, handgun and snowflake suit.

SAINTS OUT: Saints officially eliminated from the playoff race. That's it for the Saints' season, pretty much.
