All Lions: Matthew Stafford Could Have Best Season of Career

John Maakaron

Matthew Stafford could be on the verge of having the best season of his 12-year NFL career.

That’s the opinion of Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports, who believes Stafford is the best quarterback in the NFC North and the No. 7 best quarterback in the National Football League. 

“It continues to fly under the radar that Stafford was on pace to throw for 4,998 yards, 38 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 2019 before an injury ended his season after eight games,” Wagner-McGough writes.

“With Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones still around, and T.J. Hockenson entering Year 2, Stafford is poised to pick up where he left off,” Wagner-McGough explains. “Assuming he can stay healthy this time around, Stafford has a legitimate chance to put together the best season of his career. He's never been better equipped to do so. That's why he's ranked seventh on a list that doesn't include Aaron Rodgers. I think he's going to be the best quarterback in the NFC North in 2020.”

Let's take a look around the web now for more of the latest Lions news:

If he is able to stay fully healthy and that back holds up I could see it happening. But if not, it is time for the Lions to move on from him after this season.


It would be the perfect time for him to have a career season! So many weapons, Stafford could put up some gawdy numbers
