Week 6 at New Orleans Saints
In the home loss to the Panthers last Sunday, Matthew Stafford took a beating. He was taped just above the knee initially due to a hamstring injury, then took another hit and received tape around his ankle and foot. The Lions QB played through the injuries and ended up throwing two fourth-quarter touchdowns to TE Darren Fells. Stafford finished the game with 229 passing yards, but was sacked 6 times. Despite playing on the road this week, things shouldn’t be as rough, as the Saints are allowing 265 yards through the air. Stafford's status is uncertain, but if he's healthy enough to go, he remains a QB1 play.
