Sports Illustrated has put out its annual NFL Preview with four regional covers.

The cover for this region features the Bears’ Jay Cutler and the Lions’ Matthew Stafford with the caption, “Where did all the gunslingers go? The NFC, that’s where.”

It’s great for Stafford to be featured on the cover and called a “gunslinger” but should Detroit be worried about the Sports Illustrated “jinx?”

This is the second time Stafford has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
