Matthew Stafford to Appear on Cover of Sports Illustrated's NFL Preview Issue

Sports Illustrated’s annual NFL Preview issue comes out this week and Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford will be featured on one of the four regional covers.

From Sports Illustrated’s announcement:

Sports Illustrated asks “Where did all the gunslingers go?” The answer is simple: Most of them reside in the NFC, where eight Pro Bowl-caliber quarterbacks grace this week’s regional covers of Sports Illustrated.

The Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler and the Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford share our NFC North cover. Neither of the quarterbacks’ teams made the playoffs last season — but for entirely different reasons.

The magazine’s other regional covers feature Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick for the NFC West, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan for the NFC South and Tony Romo and Nick Foles for the NFC East.
