Darrell Bevell explains why he pulled Matthew Stafford out of loss vs. Titans

Earlier in the week, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who is dealing with a painful rib injury, said that he only wanted to start Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans if he thought he would be able to finish it.

Well, Stafford did end up starting the game but he was not able to finish it as he was pulled out of the game in the fourth quarter with the Lions down big to the Titans.

Following the game, Lions interim head coach Darrell Bevell explained that the decision to take Stafford out of the game was because he felt his quarterback had given the team all he had and with the game going the way it was, there was no need to risk further injury.

Stafford completed 22 of 32 passes for 252 yards and a touchdown for a rating of 102.6 in the game.
