Against a Tampa Bay Buccaneer defense that was supposed to be one of the better ones in the league, Matthew Stafford showed why the Detroit Lions used the No. 1 overall pick on him a couple years ago.
If not for the interception he threw, Stafford would have put up a 30-point week with 305 yards through the air and three scores.
Stafford gets a favorable matchup in Week 2 against a Kansas City Chief defense that allowed Ryan Fitzpatrick to throw for four touchdowns.
With one of the best wide receivers in the league at his disposal in Calvin Johnson and an emerging tight end in Brandon Pettigrew, Stafford has the ability to put up impressive numbers week in and week out.
Expect him to score between 25 and 30 points in Week 2 putting him at the top of the list of quarterbacks this week along with the elite guys.
