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

Stafford completed 15 of 21 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 24-10 win over the Giants. He also rushed three times for 23 yards and lost a fumble.

Stafford followed his four-touchdown outing in Week 1 by throwing a pair of scores in the first half. However, besides Week 1 of the 2010 season -- when a shoulder injury forced him out before halftime -- Stafford's 122 yards marked the fewest of his career. With a lost fumble to boot, it wasn't a great night for Stafford, but his two touchdowns and second victory of the season should keep him satisfied. Looking ahead, the Lions' Week 3 matchup against the Falcons could end up being a shootout, which would surely favor a bounce back from Stafford statistically.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Tosses four TDs against Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 29 of 41 pass attempts for 292 yards, four touchdowns and one interception Sunday during the Lions' 35-23 victory over the Cardinals. He also rushed twice for 14 yards.

After throwing a pick-six on his very first pass of the day, Stafford bounced back in impressive fashion Sunday and ultimately rallied the Lions to 26 straight points after falling behind 17-9 late in the third quarter. Twice he connected with rookie Kenny Golladay for touchdowns of 10 and 45 yards, but also found Marvin Jones and Theo Riddick for short-range scores as well -- with all of this coming against last season's fourth-ranked passing defense. However, it should be noted that the Cardinals almost completely shut down Detroit's running game (3.03 YPC), so Stafford was almost forced to take to the air to put up points. With that said, the Georgia product could be in for a similar situation next week against a Giants defense that allowed the third-fewest rushing yards in 2016 but just the 23rd-most passing yards.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Staying in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions and Stafford reached agreement on a five-year contract extension Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Stafford's deal surpasses Derek Carr's five-year, $125 million extension from June, with an annual price tag of $27 million per year, per Kyle Meinke of In a sense, Stafford's contract is justified, as he ranks second all-time in passing yards per game (278). Moreover, he's coming off the second- and third-best quarterback ratings of his career, mostly under the tutelage of offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Now that he's set financially, Stafford can focus on notching his first playoff win.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford was handed a day off at Monday's practice, Kyle Meinke of reports.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Finds groove Friday versus Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 15 of 22 passes for 190 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Friday's 30-28 preseason loss to the Patriots.

Though he struggled early on, Stafford found a groove as the first half progressed and led an 80-yard touchdown drive just before halftime, which he capped off with a touchdown pass to Marvin Jones. He proceeded to orchestrate another long scoring drive to open the second half and was pulled from the game at that point in favor of Jake Rudock. Though Stafford will sit out next week's preseason finale against the Bills, he demonstrated in this one that he's ready to go for the start of the regular season.
