Detroit Lions quarterback Matt Stafford looked iffy for this week's game against the Denver Broncos earlier the week. He suited up, and the Lions could not be happier. Through the first two quarters of play, Stafford has 191 yards and two touchdowns. He has completed 16 of 22 passes as Detroit leads a laugher 24-3.
If Matthew Stafford could stay healthy long enough to play in the Lions' game against the Denver Broncos, he was ready for a tasty matchup with Calvin Johnson against a struggling secondary.
The Broncos are ranked 19th in the league against the pass, and, other than dominating the Dolphins' Matt Moore last week, have been carved up by the likes of Philip Rivers, Jason Campbell and Matt Hasselbeck, with whom Stafford is certainly on par, if not superior. The only question remained, would he play, or would Shaun Hill benefit from the matchup?
