Stafford didn’t put his best foot forward on Sunday, completing just over half of his passes, while producing only 21 points. But the most important stat that the NFL has to offer, is how many wins you have, and Stafford has the Lions sitting atop the NFC North with a 6-3 record. We have always known that Stafford has the arm talent, but he is finally proving this year that he has what it takes to win in this league, which could possibly land his team a spot in the playoffs.
