Stafford NFL jerseys wholesale, Lions surge past struggling Packers


The Detroit Lions (4-4) and the Green Bay Packers (4-4) are two divisional foes passing in the night, as Detroit’s prime-time 30-17 victory at Lambeau Field in Week 9 made abundantly clear. Here’s what we learned:

is feeling it. The Lions quarterback was zoned in the second consecutive week against Green Bay, throwing with superior anticipation and touch for 361 yards at 11.4 yards per attempt. Unlike in the Lions’ loss to Pittsburgh, Stafford hit pay dirt at Lambeau, tossing two dimes to Marvin Jones (7 rec, 107 yards). His psychic timing with Jones and Golden Tate (7 receptions, 113 yards) was Aaron Rodgers-esque in the injured QB’s own building. Behind Stafford’s deft play, Detroit did not attempt a punt on the evening.

The Lions held the ball for over 36 minutes Monday night, frustrating and tiring the Packers’ defense, which surrendered over 400 total yards for the third time in four games. “We just s—-ed the bed. Point blank. Period,” Green Bay corner Damarious Randall told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “It was just a lack of coverage, a lack of NFL jerseys wholesale pass rush, a lack of everything. They just flat out played with Detroit Lions jersey better tonight. Period.”

When Stafford is rolling, his offense seems invincible — until it enters the red zone, but we’ll get to that soon. His return to MVP form comes at the perfect time for a Lions team that had lost three straight before Monday evening. Sitting at .500, Detroit has games against Cleveland, Chicago and Minnesota coming up. A clean sweep, a probable outcome if this offense continues to churn, could put the Lions ahead in the NFC North by the dawn of December.

Stafford’s stellar evening highlighted all the more his lack of competition on the other side of the ball and Nike NFL jerseys wholesale. In his third game filling in for Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley (245 yards, 6.4 yards per attempt) improved only marginally upon his past limited performances. Early on, the Packers asked Hundley to move the pocket and get the ball into the hands of their faster playmakers (Randall Cobb, Trevor Davis) close to or behind the line of scrimmage, but Green Bay struggled to gain productive yardage. When asked to stand in, the young QB was antsy, choosing to roll back and out of instead of stepping up into the pocket. Those counter-productive plays set Green Bay back all night long. Hundley played best when running the no-huddle, but Green Bay didn’t utilize it until it had fallen behind three scores in the middle of the second half.

The Detroit Lions left tackle will begin practicing on Wednesday after starting the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list with a torn labrum. Rapoport added that there is no word on when Decker will play.

The timing of his return is right on schedule. When Decker underwent surgery in June, he was given a four-to-six-month recovery timetable. The left tackle will return to the practice field four and a half months after going under the NFL jerseys wholesale knife.

Decker’s eventual entry into the starting lineup will be a huge relief to a Lions offensive line that has struggled mightily to develop a ground NFL jerseys wholesale game and protect the quarterback. Entering Week 9, Matthew Stafford is the second-most sacked quarterback in the league (25). That high number puts the typically elusive QB in the company of two struggling young guns (Jacoby Brissett and Trevor Siemian) and one aging journeyman (Josh McCown) wholesale jerseys.

In Decker’s stead, the Lions have had to rely on former second-overall pick Greg Robinson, who joined Detroit in the offseason after the Rams swapped him for a sixth-round pick before his rookie contract expired. Pro Football Focus ranks Robinson as the 71st-best tackle in the league this year; for comparison, the site pegged Decker 23rd among all tackles last season. After starting Detroit’s first six games, Robinson suffered an ankle injury and was replaced by Brian Mihalik , a 2015 seventh-round pick who came into the league as a defensive end.

The Detroit Lions signed the Pro Bowl kicker to a three-year contract extension on Wednesday, the team NFL jerseys wholesale announced. Prater’s new deal is worth $11.4 million with a max value of $12.15 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. It also includes a $3.6 million signing bonus, Rapoport reported by .

“Matt is among the best kickers in the National Football League and has proven that time and time again since coming to Detroit in 2014,” Lions general manager Bob Quinn said in a statement. “This extension solidifies our kicking game through 2020. I would like to thank Matt and his representatives for their work on getting this contract extension completed.”

One of the league’s top booters , Prater was in the final season of a three-year pact in Detroit and will now be under contract through 2020.

Since joining the Lions in 2014 from Denver, Prater has been an above-average kicker, ranking 11th with 85 made field goals and 13th in points (355). He has made 10 of his 12 field goal attempts this season with a long of 58 yards.
