On top of the questions about Stafford, the Lions defense suffered a major loss having placed defensive tackle Haloti Ngata in Injured Reserve due to an elbow injury (biceps).
As for the Saints, they spent Week Five on a bye, so they should be well-rested for the game against the resilient Lions. New Orleans did defeated the Panthers in Week Three, 34-13. So the Saints are a quality squad that did defeat the team that beat Detroit over the weekend.
