Lose the game. Nothing beneficial in any sort comes from a victory.

Shouldn't the Packers have the same attitude?

Could be a terrible game

Can't root against the Lions here. Hoping Stafford goes off for something like

25/30 for 350 TD's and 4 TD and finishes above 100 QB rating. Just a milestone number for good QB's. Hoping Tate gets over 1000 yds for the year, too.

Stafford should be in street clothes for this one. What if he goes down with a serious injury?

To be fair.....you could say that about ANY game he plays.

The opposition to your point is if he did get hurt.....he's got 7 months to get well.

But not every game is irrelevant as this one.

I would point out that NFL players missing time at the beginning of the season due to lingering off season surgeries is not something out of the ordinary.
