Matthew Stafford’s week two performance was enough to earn a nomination for the FedEX Air NFL Player of the Week Award. Great job, Lions fans. Enough of you voted for number nine that he has won the vote.
From the official release:
The NFL announced today that quarterback MATTHEW STAFFORD of the Detroit Lions and running back FRED JACKSON of the Buffalo Bills are the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week for games played on September 18-19.
Stafford completed 23 of 39 passes for 294 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the Lions’ 48-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. The 45-point margin of victory is the largest in Detroit team history. Combined with his three Week 1 touchdown passes, Stafford’s four score performance helped him tie a 1962 Lions team record for most touchdown passes in the season’s first two games.
Congratulations to Matthew!
