Lions' Matthew Stafford: Pair of touchdowns in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 25 of 42 passes for 274 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Lions' 34-22 loss to the Bears on Sunday. He also rushed twice for nine yards and fumbled once but recovered.

Stafford put up over 40 pass attempts for the second time in the last three games with the Lions facing a large deficit, which also led to his fifth game of over 270 passing yards this season. He also has thrown multiple touchdowns in six of his last seven contests, with Kenny Golladay and Kerryon Johnson on the receiving end of both of his passing scores Sunday. The fact he lost Marvin Jones to a knee injury in the second half certainly didn't help Stafford's cause either, and he ultimately ran out of time to mount a comeback. He'll look to generate a better effort versus the Panthers in Week 11 matchup.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Held under 200 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 25 of 36 passes for 199 yards without a touchdown or interception in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Vikings. He also rushed five times for six yards and lost a fumble.

Stafford was under siege throughout, taking 10 sacks. His fumble came on a regrettable decision to pitch the ball back to his running back on the outside, leading to a 32-yard Vikings defensive touchdown when the play went awry. If Stafford doesn't get better protection in Week 10 against the ferocious Bears defense, he could be in for another ugly afternoon.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Turns the ball over twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 27 of 40 passes for 310 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during Sunday's 28-14 loss to Seattle. He added six yards on one carry and a lost fumble on the ground.

Flushed out of the pocket, Stafford muscled the ball 39 yards downfield to a streak Marvin Jones for the game's first touchdown late in the first quarter. Detroit didn't strike again until the fourth quarter, when Seattle had already taken control of the game. The Lions did not have their new-found run game on Sunday and Stafford showed that, albeit in a losing effort, he is still able to pile up stats when counted on to run the whole show. His interception was just his second since Week 1 and he's thrown multiple touchdown passes six straight games in what has been a somewhat under-the-radar season. Next up is a Minnesota defense that, despite some early challenges, has climbed up into the top half of the league in opponent passer rating this season.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Tosses two scores in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 18 of 22 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 32-21 win over Miami. He added nine yards on the ground on four carries.

What sort of alternate universe are we living in where Detroit runs for 248 yards and Stafford winds up with just 22 passing attempts? If this represents a continuation of a new, more balanced Lions offense, fans can probably expect a less dynamic, but more efficient Stafford. The Lions have boasted a 100-yard rusher twice in the past four games, with Stafford completing 72.8 percent of his passes during that span with a touchdown:interception ration of eight:one. After his methodical execution of a stingy Miami pass defense, Stafford takes on another defense ranked in the top five in the league in opponent passer rating, Seattle, next Sunday.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Pair of touchdowns in Week 5 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 14 of 26 passes for 183 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Lions' 31-23 win over the Packers on Sunday. He also lost a yard on his sole rush.

It was an unusually muted day through the air for the Lions, who fed two different running backs with double-digit carries for the second time this season. That led to a season-low amount of attempts and passing yardage for Stafford, but he still managed to throw for multiple scores for the fourth consecutive contest. The 10-year veteran now boasts a 10:5 TD:INT through five games and will look to stay hot against the Dolphins in Week 7 following a Week 6 bye.
