Stafford, Golladay Listed As Questionable Against Saints

Last week, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was sacked six times by the Carolina Panthers and hurt his ankle in the process. While the Saints defense created several big plays, the group also allowed the Lions plenty of chances to pick up chunks of yardage. New Orleans had 128 rushing yards in the first half. There's no excuse for the Detroit Lions playing a guy Mihalik at left tackle in a real game-and they actually did it by choice before having to do it by necessity.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees was excellent in the first half, but his numbers weren't impressive by the end as he finished 20 of 30 for 186 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Saints came right back when Cameron Jordan pulled in a batted Stafford pass in the end zone for a touchdown and a 52-38 advantage with 4:58 showing on the clock, a score that ultimately held up until the final gun sounded.

Stafford hit Marvin Jones Jr. with a 22-yard touchdown pass to move the Lions to within 45-17 midway through the third frame and followed that up with another 22-yard TD pass, this one to Darren Fells, to move Detroit to within 45-24 with 1:21 remaining in the third. This game amassed a ridiculous 90 points, as the Saints tamed the Lions, 52-38 in Week 6. Ingram capped the series with a one-yard run. Ingram had 25 carries for 114 yards, five catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns. It seemed like the defense was batting a ball on every possession.

Despite facing a larger deficit than any National Football League team had ever recovered, the Lions continued to fight.

After a failed onside kick, safety Miles Killebrew forced Ingram to fumble and the Lions recovered. Rookie Jamal Agnew returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown and defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson picked off Brees near the goal line for another score.
