The Detroit Lions are off to a 2-1-1 start and after nearly beating the Kansas City Chiefs (they should have), they are starting to get some major respect around the league.
One of the big reasons why the Lions are where they are are is because of the brilliant play of Matthew Stafford.
Through his first four games, Stafford has completed 62.4% of his passes for 1,122 yards and nine touchdowns to go with just two interceptions. To top things off, he has posted a career-best 102.6 quarterback rating up to this point in the season.
Despite Stafford's success this season, Bleacher Report decided to put together a short ‘Joker-themed' cartoon which rips Stafford for only putting up stats and not winning big games.
Matthew Stafford realizes the Lions have been a comedy, not a tragedy. 🤡

Apparently, whoever created this video does not realize the success Stafford and the Lions have had against the NFC North over the past couple of seasons.
Considering the amount of fake news Bleacher Report spews out, this video does not surprise us in the slightest.
Kerryon Johnson agrees.
