On some really crappy Lions teams. Saw him make sacks despite being triple teamed.

He was also great on MNF.

Back In 1962 on Thanksgiving day, He almost single handedly beat Bart Starr and the Pack 26-14. It seems everytime Starr would go back to throw, Karras was all over him. The Packs Only loss that year.

Back before ESPN highlights, he had one play that made the national sports news. He was chasing the Packers' Jimmy Taylor down field in a lost cause speed wise, so bout half way down he started trying to kick Taylor in the ass. he took 4 good shots before tripping and falling but it was funny as hell. Has a beautiful wife for one of his looks, a former tv star, too.
