Two touchdown tosses for Detroit QB Matthew Stafford

Associated Press - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 200 yards and two touchdowns in less than a half, leading the Detroit Lions to a 34-10 preseason victory over the New England Patriots on Saturday night.

New England quarterback Tom Brady struggled, connecting on just over half of his passes for 145 yards with a TD and an interception for New England (2-1).

The Lions and their sellout crowd at Ford Field were clearly fired up for the nationally televised game against the elite Patriots.

Stafford and Detroit’s defensive front were impressive in the third preseason game, one that both teams treated like a real game for much of the first half.

Fantasy Impact: 

The dazzling performance was another example of how much upside Stafford has if he stays healthy. Detroit's defense showed why they're on the fantasy radar for the first time in years. New England shouldn't have any trouble getting back on track once the regular season starts.
