Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals
Whether Stafford plays or not, we do not like this matchup against the Cardinals. Last week showed that without enough talent surrounding him, it is difficult for the Lions to generate points. Already down Marvin Jones and Kerryon Johnson, there’s not enough for Stafford to post up points. If Stafford does play, his back injury may slow him down enough that the team may opt to run the ball with LeGarrett Blount since the run is the Cards’ weakness on defense. They can however, defend the pass very well, putting the clamps on Aaron Rodgers, and keeping even Patrick Mahomes to just 249 passing yards and two touchdowns.
