It has been a strange week within the Detroit Lions organization, as they have been without their star quarterback Matthew Stafford. Being quarantined due to deemed high-risk contact, Stafford has been separated from his team. However, Stafford has been given a positive update on Sunday morning, being ruled COVID negative and eligible to play against the Minnesota Vikings.

Also dealing with star wide receiver Kenny Golladay being out this week, there likely was a lot of offensive adjustments for Detroit, leading up to its game in Minnesota. These, of course, are adjustments that you would love your starting quarterback there for. Not necessarily to benefit Stafford, but it would be a benefit to many of the young pass-catchers.

Stafford was not even able to travel with his team on Saturday, instead, flying solo to Minnesota.

The Lions quarterback has had back-to-back 300-yard passing games, which have been his first two of the season. Facing a banged up Vikings secondary, he will attempt to make it three in a row.
