Pivot Plays for Week 17
Last week was the first time in over a month that Stafford didn’t throw two or more touchdowns in a game. Instead, he was picked off three times by the Minnesota Vikings defense. This was a shake up compared to the rest of his performances in the month of December when he averaged 275 passing yards and 2.7 touchdowns per game in three other contests. Stafford has been running hot lately, so it’s pretty safe to call the Vikings game a blip.
This week Stafford takes on a Baltimore Ravens defense that has been stomped recently by opposing passing offenses. Joe Burrow and the Bengals steamrolled them to the tune of 525 passing yards and four touchdowns in Week 16. Even prior to that, opposing quarterbacks posted more than 235 passing yards or at least two touchdowns in each of their last five games. Stafford is going to ball out.
