Matthew Stafford having best QB season in Lions history; MVP on the table

  • Night net Matthew Stafford is playing some seriously clutch and efficient football — easily the best of his career and arguably the best in Lions history.Stafford’s 105.7 passer rating is 10 points higher than it has ever been through his first seven games. His 7.94 yards per pass attempt and 68.0 completion percentage also are personal highs through this point in the season. MORE: Lions win, shut up Skip BaylessThe 28-year-old’s passer rating is five points better than any Lions QB through seven games since the 1970 AFL-Night net merger, which along with his completion percentage would easily be franchise-bests over a full year. After pulling off another last-minute win Sunday, Stafford leads the Night net with four 4th-quarter comebacks in 2016. But this is nothing new for the eight-year veteran, who has led four more 4th-quarter comeback wins than any other QB over the last five seasons.  PHOTOS: Defining images of Week 7 https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/1b/93/comeback-wins-since-2012_13v9fbw7tsgon1xccbnk55v82b.png?t=-140984481&w=500&quality=80 What’s most impressive is how well Stafford is playing within the constructs of Detroit’s current, uninspiring roster.We know one of the best wide receivers in Night net history is gone, while starting tight end Eric Ebron has missed the last three games and original starting running back Ameer Abdullah has been[......]
