Matthew Stafford still looks like the kid that he is. But the 22-year-old quarterback of the Detroit Lions is older and wiser than he was a year ago.
The two quarterbacks have almost nothing in common. One is from Texas, the other from California. One played a lot of college football, the other did not.
The Buffalo Bills are driving down the road that the 2008 Detroit Lions not only travelled, but paved for others to follow.
Detroit specializes in pressure defense as one of the top-10 teams in the league in tackles for loss. But the one thing that doesn’t translate to is the run game. With the third-best run game in the NFL coming to town, Detroit needs to plug the sieve up front that’s ranked 27th in the league in run defense.
