Lions' Matthew Stafford: Posts best completion percentage of career
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford ended the season having completed 398 of 592 passes for 4,262 yards, 32 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Stafford's 67.2 completion percentage shattered his previous career high by nearly four percentage points and he narrowly missed setting a new career high in passer rating, an impressive feat given how the season started. During the first eight weeks of the season, Stafford completed a respectable 64.5 percent of his passes and 260 yards per game, but with a rough 13-to-11 touchdown-to-interception ratio. After the Lions' Week 9 bye, Stafford improved slightly with a 70 percent completion percentage and 272 yards per game, but his touchdown-interception ratio really shined, jumping to 19-2. The primary difference between the two halves was who was calling plays, as Joe Lombardi was fired shortly before the bye and replaced by quarterbacks coach Jim Bob Cooter. An offseason to further adjust the offense should be great for Stafford, but Detroit has a lot of questions this offseason, ranging from whether head coach Jim Caldwell will be back to the possible retirement of Calvin Johnson.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Tosses three touchdowns against Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford connected on 28 of 39 of his attempts for 298 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over Chicago. He added 10 yards on the ground.

Less than two months ago, the Lions were heading into their bye with a 1-7 record and the future of Stafford was in doubt. The Lions finished the season's second half with a 6-2 record and a three-game winning streak, and Stafford looks like he's back on track. During the season's final eight games, Stafford completed just shy of 70 percent of his passes and boasted a 19-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He averaged 272 yards per game during the span. Given Calvin Johnson's enormous contract, change may be coming one way or the other in Detroit, but if head coach Jim Caldwell and offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter are permitted to stay, Stafford may be in line for a big 2016.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Throws for 301 yards, two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthew Stafford completed 29 of 37 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the 49ers. He added 11 yards on the ground on five carries.

Before the beginning of the season, the talk in Detroit was that fans were about to see the next step in Stafford's development as a more composed, efficient passer. It took the firing of offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, but Detroit Lions fans and fantasy owners are beginning to see what was being hyped. Since the bye week, Stafford has tossed 16 touchdown passes and just two picks in seven games. Stafford will close the season against the Chicago Bears, a team that is ninth worst in oppsing quarterback rating this season.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Three touchdowns against Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthew Stafford completed 22-of-25 passes for 254 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Monday night's win over the Saints.

Stafford was nothing short of brilliant Monday night, throwing for as many touchdowns as incompletions. In fact, Stafford totaled three touchdown passes by halftime, taking advantage of a dreadful Saints defense while continuing his strong close to this season. To that point, Stafford has thrown for 12 touchdowns and just one interception over the Detroit Lions ' last four games, putting him in excellent form ahead of Sunday's home game against the 49ers.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Throws for two scores against Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matthew Stafford completed 30 of 46 passes for 245 yards, two touchdowns and a pick in Sunday's loss to the Rams. He ran for five more yards and added a fumble during the game.

Stafford snapped a three-game streak during which he did not throw a pick, his longest such run of the season. From Weeks 3 through 5, Stafford scared off owners while totaling just two touchdowns, a sum that he has met or topped in six of his last eight games. The Rams' stingy pass defense managed to take Stafford's strength, the deep ball, away on Sunday as Stafford was unable to complete a pass of at least 20 yards for just the second time this season. The next few weeks promise for better results as the Detroit Lions take on two of the NFL's worst pass defenses in Weeks 15 and 16.
