Lions QB Matthew Stafford continues to climb the stats ladder

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is enjoying a bounce-back season, and he added to his overall legacy this afternoon against the Oakland Raiders.

Through two quarters, Stafford has thrown for 239 yards and two touchdowns, including a 59-yard bomb to Kenny Golladay. That particular pass leapfrogged Stafford past New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for the 3rd-most passing yards a QB has had in his first 11 seasons (40,742).

Additionally, Stafford has also passed Dan Fouts for 20th most touchdown passes in NFL history with 254.
