Lions QB Matthew Stafford throws for 390 yards in Week 13 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for a season-high 390 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' 34-17 win vs. Chicago on Thanksgiving. While Stafford -- who completed 34 of 45 passes -- didn't throw an interception, he did lose a fumble in the first half, which led to a touchdown for Chicago.

It comes as no surprise Stafford's favorite target Thursday was star receiver Calvin Johnson, who totaled 11 catches for 146 yards. Johnson also caught both of Stafford's touchdowns. He had a 25-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter and a 6-yard touchdown catch right before halftime.

Stafford has thrown for two touchdowns in four of his last six games. The Lions are back in action Week 14 vs. Tampa Bay.

Last straw for Matthew Stafford?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Here's the thing: If you've been starting Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in Fantasy all this time, your season is probably just about over anyway. He's contributed multiple scores in only five of 11 games this season, and he just had his second straight with no scores at all Week 12 at New England. At a position where the minimum expectation is two scores in a standard 12-team league -- and some of the best are liable to have three or four -- that's a backbreaker.

Of course, Stafford himself has been one of the best of the best before. In 2011, he threw for 5,038 yards and 41 touchdowns. But that was three years ago. Any hope of a coaching change helping him recapture that form is long gone now.

To some degree, you could have seen his last two games coming given the matchups. The Patriots and Cardinals have two of the more opportunistic pass defenses in football. But interceptions weren't as much the problem for Stafford in those games as a lack of touchdown passes. Zero over a two-game stretch is unacceptable for a presumed top-12 quarterback, regardless of the competition.

But all that being said ... he's going against a Bears defense in Week 13 that has been absolutely dreadful against the pass, he has two of probably the NFL's best 25 wide receivers in Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate, and he had his best three-game stretch of the season prior to these last two games. If you've stuck it out this long with him, might as well go down with the ship, right?

Lions' Matthew Stafford held to lowest completion percentage of career
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford endured another lackluster performance on Sunday, completing a career-low 39.1 percent of his pass attempts in a 34-9 defeat to New England in Week 12.

Stafford was held out of the end zone for the second straight game and was picked off once by Logan Ryan late in the game. Stafford was unable to convert a 4th-and-10 play early in the fourth quarter, sliding feet-first for a gain of 9 yards to force a turnover on downs. Stafford compiled 264 yards through the air while completing 18 of 46 pass attempts. He was sacked twice, picked off once and finished with a 49.5 passer rating.

He'll look to bounce back on short rest against the Bears on Thanksgiving.

Matthew Stafford credits Cardinals after Week 11 loss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford failed to lead a touchdown drive in the Week 11 loss at Arizona. He hit 18 of 30 throws for a season-low 183 yards with one interception, and had another interception dropped by cornerback Jerraud Powers.

It was Stafford's fifth game this season with one or zero touchdowns. Stafford was sacked four times and often couldn't find anyone open.

"That's one of the best secondaries, if not the best secondary, we've seen all season," he told Fox Sports.

Stafford visits the Patriots in Week 12.

Matthew Stafford is fastest to 20,000 yards
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With a 30-yard completion to Golden Tate in the second quarter Sunday, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford surpassed 20,000 passing yards for his career. He did it in his 71st game, faster than any other quarterback.

Dan Marino did it in 74 games, Kurt Warner in 76 and Peyton Manning in 78.
