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.

Lions' Stafford tosses game-winner in final seconds vs. Miami
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford led his team to another come-from-behind drive to lead his team past the Dolphins in Week 10, 20-16, on Sunday.

Stafford didn't waste any time hooking up with his top receiver, connecting with Calvin Johnson for a 5-yard pass to a convert a third down on the opening drive, which led to a field goal. On the first play of the ensuing drive, Stafford hooked up with Calvin Johnson on a playaction for a 49-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He nearly found Johnson in the end zone again, but his pass was picked off by Brent Grimes late in the second quarter. 

He got back on track and led his team to an 11-play, 74-yard drive which was capped off by a game-winning touchdown pass to Theo Riddick. Down three points, Stafford scrambled out of the pocket and fired a sidearmed swing pass to Riddick at the back of the end zone for an 11-yard touchdown with 29 seconds remaining in the game.

Stafford compiled 280 yards through the air while completing 25 of 40 pass attempts. He added two touchdowns and one interception, registering a 89.6 passer rating. He was sacked three times and finished with minus-1 yards on the ground. 

Stafford has 2,496 passing yards with 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions this season. The Lions will travel to Phoenix to face the Cardinals in Week 11.

Lions glad to have Megatron back, but also benefited from his absence
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Lions are obviously excited to get wide receiver Calvin Johnson back in the lineup Week 10 vs. Miami after he missed the last three games due to an ankle injury. However, the Lions did see some benefits to playing without their All-Pro receiver, according to MLive.com.

"If you can win in those situations, I think it adds something to your repertoire," coach Jim Caldwell said. "It makes you look at things differently, it makes those synapses function a little bit differently, because sometimes you have to go about your game slightly different. I think that's a plus. It makes you stronger overall. It does add more balance to what you're doing."

While the Lions were able to win all three games Megatron was sidelined, quarterback Matthew Stafford is still happy to see his star receiver make his return.

"The more experience and the better everybody else plays, the less you feel you have to get 81 the ball," Stafford said. "It's still conducive to playing good offense to get the best receiver on the planet the ball as much as you can. We'll continue to try and do that as well."

Megatron's return could overcome tough matchup for Stafford
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford gets his best weapon back and a good test for his abilities in Week 10, with Calvin Johnson returning from an ankle injury in time for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Stafford has struggled at times this season, even when Johnson was healthy, but that was also just a three-game sample size. He had 33 Fantasy points in dismantling the Giants, and then fell on his face in a 3-point effort against the Packers. Still, the longer track record indicates Stafford can easily put up big numbers when he has Johnson available.

However, that will be tested against the Dolphins, who have been stingy against opposing passing attacks. The Dolphins have allowed just two quarterbacks to record 20-plus Fantasy points this season, and rank as the second-best defense at slowing down quarterbacks, allowing just 14.3 Fantasy points per game.

Stafford is still a high-upside option, especially with the development of Golden Tate's game. Even though the matchup makes him somewhat risky, he should be worth rolling the dice on in Week 10.
