Marvin Jones has 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career, but he said there was nothing special about the way he accomplished the feat against his old team, the Cincinnati Bengals. "It really doesn't mean anything right now," Jones said Sunday. "After the season, I'll look back at my accomplishments. I needed 30 yards. I would've hit it anyway." Jones has 57 catches for 1,020 yards and eight touchdowns this season, and he had three catches for 50 yards in last week's loss to the Bengals. The loss eliminated the Lions from the playoffs. Jones, who spent the first four seasons of his career in Cincinnati, reached 1,000 yards on his final catch of the game, a 31-yard reception in the third quarter that helped set up a Matt Prater field goal. Jones now has 14 catches of 25-plus yards on the season. "It is what it is," Jones said. "It’s a personal accomplishment, but at the same time we’re here to win games. That all takes care of itself, like I said way back. We have another game left and we have to go after it."
