NFL 2019: Lions banking on QB Stafford with no backup plan

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Lions have leaned heavily on Matthew Stafford since selecting him No. 1 overall in the 2009 NFL draft.

Stafford has started since he was a rookie, and after injuries stunted his first two seasons, the strong-armed quarterback has started every game for eight straight years.

Detroit desperately needs that streak to extend through Matt Patricia's second year. Otherwise, it's difficult to envision how the Lions could possibly bounce back from a 10-loss season in Patricia's debut season as a head coach.
