Throughout his NFL career, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has put up some eye-popping numbers, including throwing for 264 total touchdowns.
But of those 264 touchdowns, not a single one has come against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In fact, the Jaguars are the only team in the NFL that Stafford has not thrown a touchdown against in his career.
When asked about the fact that the Jaguars is the only team he has never thrown a touchdown against, Stafford said he was not aware of it but that he would love to throw a TD vs. the Jaguars on Sunday.
“I did not know that,” Stafford said Wednesday. “That needs to happen, for sure.”
“Calvin (Johnson) had (129 yards receiving) the one week,” Stafford recalled. “He couldn’t practice and he could only turn right. That was when we played at their place. He had a bad knee and he could only turn right. And then the other game was at home, I think we had 21 rushes for 14 yards or something like that. (Blake) Bortles kind of turned it over a couple times to us.”
“Yeah, I mean, I need to make that happen,” Stafford said. “Sorry for going back into the archives there, but yeah, it’d be great. I’d love to have that on the tombstone one day or something.”
The next two games will likely tell us exactly what the Lions will do with their head coach and GM (if we already don't know)
Just can't get beat by Jacksonville and Atlanta as they're currently constructed.
