Lions Shooting Blanks On Offense In 4th Quarter
LARRY LAGE, AP Sports Writer
ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford says it’s tough to win with too many turnovers.
The Lions have found that out the hard way. Detroit has won only one game in the last month because it has turned the ball over 15 times in four games.
Stafford has had a lot to do with that, throwing seven interceptions and losing two fumbles during the stretch.
He has been particularly shaky in the fourth quarter.
Stafford has completed less than one-fourth of his passes with one touchdown, two interceptions and has lost a fumble in the final quarters of the last four games. That has led to the offense being held scoreless in those fourth quarters as the team lost leads and three games.
