    News

    Matthew Stafford was 20 of 29 for 323 yards and threw three touchdown passes Sunday in the Detroit Lions' 35-11 win over the Green Bay Packers. He did not throw an interception, didn't fumble and was sacked two times. Stafford added two rushing yards on two carries.

    Impact

    Stafford even caught a 2-yard conversion pass from Golden Tate as part of a big finale in a playoff-less Lions season. Stafford surpassed 4,000 yards for the sixth straight season and came up one TD pass shy of his third year with at least 30. The 29-year-old continues to be a very good fantasy option, having found a great chemistry with Marvin Jones and Tate, and could be even better next year if the Lions ever find a running game.

    Stafford completed 20 of 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 35-11 victory over Green Bay. He also caught a two-point conversion while rushing twice for two yards.

    Impact

    Stafford capped off another statistically-strong season in Detroit by putting together one of his most masterful games in recent memory, as his 140.4 passer rating was his highest mark since 2015. The Georgia product ended the campaign in style, too, sneaking behind the Packers defense to catch a two-point conversion on a trick play in the fourth quarter. Stafford will now finish the season with a fantastic stat line that includes 4,446 yards passing, a 65.5 completion percentage, 7.9 YPA mark and 29:10 TD:INT ratio -- while being sacked 47 times, the second-highest total in the league. He'll now proceed into the second year of the massive extension he signed last summer expecting to have the same underrated but potent nucleus of wideouts back at his disposal -- one that includes a pair of 1,000-yard receivers in Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, along with an ascending deep threat in 2017 third-rounder Kenny Golladay. If the Lions can finally find an answer at the running back position this offseason, Stafford could realistically improve upon his 2017 numbers if opposing defenses are forced to station more players closer to the line of scrimmage. However, it's possible the Lions move on from head coach Jim Caldwell this offseason, which could signal the start of an adjustment period for the entire team.
