Matthew Stafford has now thrown for four or more touchdowns in a game four times in his career. That breaks Bobby Layne's Lions record of three games with four or more touchdowns.
Stafford got off to a slow start on Sunday and went 3-of-8 for 35 yards and two interceptions early on. After that? As John Niyo notes, Stafford proceeded to finish the game with these numbers: 25-of-28, 300 yards and five touchdowns.
Stafford is the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era of the NFL to have two games with five touchdown passes in his first 23 career starts, according to Jon Zimmer.
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has a high ankle sprain. It's not clear how long he will be out, but if this injury turns into something that lasts a few weeks, it's possible he could miss the Dec. 11 game against the Lions.
