Matthew Stafford has been one of the fewer bright constants on a struggling Detroit Lions team, recently. He has played through injuries and has been productive during it, but obviously it has not always translated to team wins.

Still, his individual dominance of certain opponents is one to make note of. These are the three teams Stafford has dominated most in his career.

3. Las Vegas Raiders (2-1, .667 Win Percentage)

While Stafford only has a 2-1 record against the Raiders, his individual performance has been dominant, passing for seven touchdowns to just one interception across those three performances. Stafford has also averaged an outstanding 359.7 passing yards per game against the Raiders. The one loss came in his most recent meeting, last season, but he still passed for 406 yards and a 110.4 passer rating.

2. Cleveland Browns (3-0, 1.000 Win Percentage)

Stafford has led the Lions to a perfect 3-0 record against the Cleveland Browns. In those three games, he has thrown a whopping 12 touchdowns with only three interceptions. He has also averaged 306.3 passing yards per contest. His first meeting against the Browns was his best, passing for 422 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. In that same game, Calvin Johnson hauled in 161 of those yards and one touchdown.

1. Washington Redskins (4-0, 1.000 Win Percentage)

While Stafford doesn't have the same sort of eye-popping individual stats against the Washington Redskins as he does facing the Browns, his record against Washington takes the cake here. Stafford has had the Redskins' number since joining the NFL, leading his team to a perfect 4-0 record against them. He has also averaged 276 passing yards per game in those four performances, throwing eight touchdowns to two interceptions.
