Matthew Stafford completed 18-of-46 passes for 264 yards with no touchdowns and one interception during the Lions' 34-9 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. He also carried the ball three times for 18 yards.
Stafford has now gone two straight games without throwing a touchdown which has resulted in two losses for the Lions. Although the Lions new offense relies more on the run game than in previous seasons, the passing game should not be struggling this bad, considering the weapons they have at the wide receiver position. Whether it is on the play of Stafford or the play calling by the coaching staff, fantasy owners can't be pleased with their starting quarterback at this time, but matchups against, the Bears, Buccaneers and Vikings over their next four games should be just what Stafford needs to get back in the circle of trust.
