In the first half of Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions receiver Kenny Golladay looked like he was on a mission.
During the second quarter, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw a pass down the right sideline that looked like it would be a sure interception by Levi Wallace of the Bills.
But Golladay was not about to let that happen as he muscled the ball away from Wallace for a big Lions gain.

WATCH: Peyton Manning calls out weakness of Detroit Lions’ QB Matthew Stafford
Whether you are a Matthew Stafford supporter or a Matthew Stafford hater, you probably agree that he is not having a very good season up to this point with the Detroit Lions.
Sure, the offensive line has been banged up, his receivers do not get separation, and Jim Bob Cooter could not play call his way out of a paper bag, but Stafford has also been part of the problem.
In his most recent analysis video, former 14-time Pro Bowl quarterback Peyton Manning pointed out one of Stafford’s biggest weaknesses, staring down his receivers rather than looking in other directions first.
“As a quarterback, believe it or not, we need to use our eyes to look off defensive linemen and pass rushers,” he said. “Don’t stare at the receiver because then the pass rushers know where you’re going to go. So look off. Even though if you know you’re gonna throw it out there to the right and to the flat, look left to start, or look down the middle. Don’t let those defensive linemen know where you’re going.”
