  • Lions' Matthew Stafford: Throws two touchdowns
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stafford completed 21 of 31 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-24 win over Chicago. Stafford has been quietly impressive this season, with multiple touchdown passes in seven of 10 games. His numbers over Detroit's three-game winning streak have been superb, though. He's posted a 7:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and an absurd 10.1 yards per attempt. Stafford is humming, but it'll be interesting to see if his luck runs out next week against Minnesota. Stafford was held to 209 passing yards and no touchdowns against the Vikings' stout defense earlier this season.

  • Stafford completed 17 of 26 passes for 249 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while adding 17 yards on four carries in Sunday's 38-24 win over Cleveland. Stafford got some help from his teammates early on, as Detroit's two first-half touchdowns came on a running play and a fumble recovery. The league's highest-paid quarterback earned his money late, however, turning a 24-17 deficit into a 38-24 win with three touchdown passes in the final 16 minutes. Those scores of eight, 29 and 40 yards raised Stafford's TD:INT ratio to 17:5 on the season.

  • Stafford completed 26 of 33 passes for 361 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 30-17 win over the Packers. Stafford finished Detroit's first drive with a 25-yard touchdown pass to Marvin Jones and never looked back, leading an offense that did not punt the ball Monday. Along with tossing another score to Jones during the fourth quarter, Stafford posted his third straight game with at least 300 yards through the air. Fresh off the momentum provided by Monday's win, Stafford will now look forward to a tasty home matchup against the lowly Browns in Week 10.

  • Lions' Matthew Stafford: Struggles in red zone
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stafford completed 27 of 45 passes for 423 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Steelers. He added 11 rushing yards on his lone carry. Stafford's day went smoother than expected thanks to an impressive performance from his injury-depleted offensive line that was going against one of the best defenses in the league. However, he was seemingly reliant on big plays the entire evening and failed to find paydirt despite having numerous chances in the red zone. While this was only his first zero-touchdown performance of the season, Stafford was blanked on six occasions last season (including playoffs), which shows the downside of captaining the Lions' one-dimensional offense.

  • Lions' Matthew Stafford: Not practicing Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stafford is not participating in Tuesday's practice, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. This doesn't come as much of a surprise with the Lions heading into their bye week, but it's also a reminder that Stafford likely is still somewhat hampered by his ankle injury. For now, Stafford's absence should be viewed as no more than a maintenance day for the veteran quarterback, and with the team now having a week off, it's unlikely he enters next Sunday's game against the Steelers as an injury risk.
