  • Stafford (finger) skipped the 2017 Pro Bowl in order to rest his injured middle finger, MLive.com reports. Stafford dislocated his right middle finger (on his throwing hand) in Week 14 against the Bears. While he finished out the regular season and also suited up for the Lions' lone playoff game in Seattle, Stafford was unable to attend the Pro Bowl because he opted for rest over surgery as means to recover. However, it isn't clear how much rest his finger may require, nor if his treatment plan will delay the start of his offseason preparation.

  • Lions' Matthew Stafford: Stifled by Seahawks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stafford completed 18 of 32 passes for 205 yards during the Lions' 26-6 postseason loss to the Seahawks on Saturday. He added 15 rushing yards across three carries. While it isn't clear if his previously-dislocated finger caused him any trouble, Stafford logged one of his worst performances of the season Saturday as his receivers did him no favors throughout the entire game. However, injured or not, taking on the Seahawks' vaunted defense is no easy task for any quarterback -- especially in the playoffs -- so it's easy to forgive the signal caller's lack of impact on the box score. Now set to enter the offseason, Stafford will look to provide his injured finger with plenty of rest as the appendage won't require surgery to heal, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com.

  • Stafford completed 26 of 41 passes for 347 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Packers. Despite having himself a quiet night entering the fourth quarter, Stafford ultimately totaled more touchdowns than he had in his previous three games combined by connecting with Anquan Boldin on a desperation hail-mary heave in garbage time. Furthermore, the Lions signal caller also posted his highest completion percentage across his last four games. However, Detroit's failure to clinch the NFC North title Sunday night locked the team into a matchup against the Seahawks -- set to be played outdoors in Seattle -- for the first round of the playoffs, a team Stafford threw for just 203 yards with zero touchdowns against last season.

  • Stafford doesn't blame the dislocated middle finger on his throwing hand for his recent struggles on the field, The Detroit Free Press reports. Stafford was one of the most efficient signal callers in the game for the first three quarters of the season, but dislocated his middle finger in Week 13 versus the Bears and hasn't been the same. He's thrown a weak 1:4 TD-to-interception ratio since suffering the injury and hasn't tossed a score in two games. So, it appears Stafford may not be telling the truth regarding how his finger has been affecting his play, which isn't hard to believe considering the appendage belongs to his throwing hand. Thankfully, Stafford won't be playing in the cold this weekend (which often requires extra grip strength to hang onto the football) as the Lions season finale Sunday versus Green Bay -- with the NFC North crown on the line -- will be played indoors in the confines of Detroit's Ford Field.

  • Lions' Matthew Stafford: Rough day against Cowboys
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stafford completed 26 of 46 passes for 260 yards with one interception Monday night against the Cowboys. He also scored on a one-yard tote. Stafford, who boasts a 1:4 TD-to-interception ratio across his past three games, has ended the season in disappointing fashion. His 63.7 passer rating Monday night was almost rock bottom as the figure represents Stafford's second-lowest mark of the season. However, he has a solid chance to end the season on a high note in a regular season finale against a Packers secondary that has allowed a league-worst 8.0 YPA to quarterbacks in 2016. Look for Stafford to come out firing, as the game decides the NFC North champion.
