Grant High school grad Ndamukong Suh has a lot to be excited about these days. The 307-pound defensive tackle out of Nebraska was the only rookie on The Associated Press' All-Pro Team.

Suh noticed one thing about the two teams that played in the NFC championship game last weekend.

Both the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears had trouble with his Detroit Lions this season.

Detroit lost to Chicago twice, but by a combined nine points.

Suh says he'll never be "a moral victory guy" but he was encouraged by Detroit's competitiveness against the conference's top teams. The Lions won their last four games to finish 6-10, including a victory over Super Bowl-bound Green Bay.
