Matthew Stafford has once again set a NFL record, this time by becoming the fastest quarterback in NFL history to throw 25,000 yards. It took him only 90 games to accomplish this feat, two less than previous holder Dan Marino.
Despite the numerous records set, Matthew Stafford has yet to win a playoff game in his seven years in the league. And with another total rebuild happening this offseason, Stafford is running out of chances.
But despite Detroit’s 4-9 record, Matthew Stafford is quitely having one of the better seasons of his career, under new Offensive Coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Stafford has thrown 26 touchdowns for over 3,600 yards, and only 14 interceptions. Stafford is on pace to have the second best QBR of his career since 2001, when he had a 97.2 rating. Coming into Sunday his QBR was 91.1.
The Detroit Lions now face the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football next week where Matthew Stafford hopes to carve up the poor New Orleans secondary.
