Stafford leads a 9-5 Lions team that is atop the NFC North and didn’t have a single player named to the Pro Bowl. But Stafford is the real highlight. The 28-year-old quarterback is putting together one of the best seasons of his career.
Completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 3,720 yards, 22 touchdowns, and eight interceptions, Stafford is running an effective, efficient Lions offense that doesn’t simply rely on huge splash plays like the team has in recent years. Eight fourth-quarter comebacks, eight game-winning drives, and Stafford’s somewhat pedestrian touchdown numbers are much easier to digest.

This was at a pretrial hearing for Hernandez, who is already serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was a former linebacker for a semi-pro football team.
Hernandez is charged in the deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu, and prosecutors say that Hernandez gunned them down after one bumped into him at a nightclub.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. The judge will decide what testimony will and will not be allowed at the trial, which is slated to start in February.
On the very next play I guess Cherilus was fed up or something, because he came off the ball and was very aggressive in pushing his hands forcefully into Irving’s facemask. While he somehow got away with the blatantly illegal contact to the head, the problem was Cherilus seemed to have forgotten that Irving’s arms were longer than his.
So while he got full extension into Irving’s facemask, Irving got full extension with his inside hand into Cherilus’ chest and was able to create enough distance to run right around him.
