Lions' Matthew Stafford: Throws four touchdowns versus Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed 23 of 31 passes for 270 yards and four touchdowns without an interception Sunday against the Rams. He added another 14 rushing yards across five carries.

Stafford took advantage of a suspect Rams secondary down its top cornerback, finishing the day with season-highs in both QBR (139.8) and passing touchdowns. He connected with six different receivers along the way, but almost exclusively focused in on Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin and Marvin Jones with TE Eric Ebron (knee) sidelined. The former No. 1 overall pick will enjoy another favorable matchup at home in Week 7 against Washington and the league's 22nd-ranked pass defense.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Overwhelms tough Eagles defense
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 19 of 25 passes for 180 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for 16 yards on six rushing attempts, in the Lions' 24-23 victory over the Eagles in Week 5.

Stafford's 180 passing yards represented his lowest total since Week 15 of 2014, but his overall performance had to have provided Lions fans with some peace of mind, given the team's recent three-game skid. While he didn't single in on any one receiver in particular, Stafford efficiently maneuvered his offense around a stingy Eagles defense and ultimately came out of the contest turnover-free. Next up is a Week 6 tilt against the Rams in the comfort of Ford Field.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Disastrous in Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 23 of 36 passes for 213 yards and two interceptions in the Lions' 17-14 loss to the Bears in Week 4. He also tallied 17 rushing yards across two carries.

Stafford's QBR of 56.8 was the lowest he's recorded since Week 5 of 2015 as the Lions failed to get much of anything going on offense against the Bears. His second interception was a particularly brutal attempt of a pass, though, and served as an all-too-common reminder of Stafford's propensity to post frustrating fantasy numbers in seemingly favorable match-ups. He'll get a chance to rebound in Week 5, but it will come against a formidable Eagles defense.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Comeback effort comes up short
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 28 of 41 pass attempts for 385 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's loss to the Packers. He also added an interception and 11 yards on two carries.

Stafford and the Lions were forced to play from behind for a majority of Sunday's contest after getting down early, which opened the door for the quarterback to put up big numbers. His favorite target Week 3 turned out to be Marvin Jones, who he connected with six times for 205 yards and two scores, including a 73-yard play. Stafford had a similar game to his Week 1 performance against the Colts, when he also tossed three touchdowns. Sunday's effort was a notable improvement from a lackluster performance in last week's loss to the Titans. His next test will come next week in a division matchup against the Bears.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Fends off Colts' comeback in historic fashion
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Stafford completed 31-of-39 pass attempts for 340 yards and three touchdowns in the Lions' 39-35 victory over the Colts. He also added five yards on the ground across two rushing attempts.

Not only did Stafford pick apart Indianapolis' injury-marred secondary for his highest yardage total since Week 6 of 2015, along the way he passed both Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner to reach second in NFL history for most passing yards by a quarterback in his first 100 games played. More impressive, though, was Stafford's composure in the fourth quarter. After Detroit managed to blow a 21-3 lead, they eventually found themselves trailing the Colts 34-35 thanks to a missed extra point by Lions K Matt Prater following the team's fifth score. However, down one with 37 seconds left in regulation, Stafford demonstrated great poise by completing three passes to three different receivers and setting Prater up for the game-winning field goal. Overall, Stafford continues to look comfortable and efficient in OC Jim Bob Cooter's newly-designed, Calvin Johnson-less offensive scheme that appeared on Sunday to revolve around getting everyone involved in the passing game, as five players each garnered at least four receptions, but none topped the team-high of seven. Up next is Detroit's home-opener against a Titans team that held Vikings QB Shaun Hill to 54.5 percent passing and zero touchdowns Week 1.
