Atlanta Falcons interim coach Raheem Morris compliments Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions were able to get back on track yesterday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, winning in decisive fashion.

They’ll be looking to make it two straight wins when they meet the Atlanta Falcons this weekend at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Interim head coach Raheem Morris, who took over from the recently fired Dan Quinn, previewed the matchup and praised quarterback Matthew Stafford:

“Matt Stafford can absolutely throw every ball on the field,” he said. “He’s as confident as it gets.”

As far as what the Falcons will need to look out for, Morris was quick to single out Detroit’s running game, led by the ageless wonder in Adrian Peterson.

“You guys got some really good running backs,” he said.

Morris is the former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
