Everybody loves stats. Matthew Stafford put up a lot of good ones for the Lions in 2015. We’ll start off with the career highs. Stafford put forth a career best 67.2 completion percentage. 67.2 is not bad when you consider his previous high was 63.5 in the anomaly that was the 2011 season. It’s also pretty good when you factor in that it was the fifth best in the NFL. Then there’s the good old QBR that everyone loves. Stafford’s career high previous to 60.9 in 2011. After dwelling in the 40’s and 50’s for three years, Stafford improved to 62.6 in 2015.
Other notable numbers are, all of them really. Stafford finished seventh in touchdowns with 32. ninth in passer rating with 97.0, the second highest of his career. Eighth in passing yards. Which really isn’t a surprise cause he throws the ball a ton right? Well Stafford threw for lowest attempts of his career. Unless of course you count his first two seasons when he was injured most of the time.
Everything wasn’t pretty. Stafford did throw for 13 interceptions. Which was the second lowest of his career, but still the tenth most in the NFL. Stafford also got sacked 44 times. Actually when you factor that in, it makes everything else a lot more impressive.
