Matthew Stafford is having an absolutely huge day for the Detroit Lions in Tampa Bay. Things started a little rough -- his interception in the first quarter was returned by Aqib Talib for a touchdown -- but he's since thrown a pair of touchdowns to guys wearing the right jersey, completing 18 of 25 passes for 265 yards. That's a good tally for an entire game, and he's accomplished it in two quarters.
Perhaps even more impressively, he's done so without relying on a single receiver. Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and Nate Burleson all have four catches, with Johnson leading the pack with 84 yards and a score. Tight end Tony Scheffler's lone reception of the day accounts for Stafford's other touchdown, an 11-yard strike.
Things haven't gone as easily for the Bucs. Josh Freeman (10-of-16 passing, 98 yards, INT) hasn't been too bad, but LaGarrette Blount and the rest of the rushing attack have combined for just 14 yards on the ground. Without a better effort to balance the offence, things won't get easier for Freeman, Mike Williams (two catches, 32 yards) or Kellen Winslow (three catches, 24 yards).
