The Detroit Lions were in a wild, snowy game in Philadelphia on Sunday and lost 34-20. The loss dropped them to 7-6 on the season, which is still good enough for Detroit to sit atop the NFC North.

Despite the team's current spot in the standings, Burleson claimed that he was heckled by a homeless man. This happened while Burleson was doing charity work, which makes it an even crazier story.

Thanks to Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke for sharing the story.
