EDGE Analysis
Playing without top receiver Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and one of his best linemen in Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot), Stafford should have had another passing touchdown considering rookie running back D'Andre Swift dropped a potential game-winning score in the closing seconds. However, outside of throwing a pick in the fourth quarter on a forced pass to his acting No. 1 wideout, Marvin Jones, Stafford generally played well against a tough Bears defensive front. If each of Desmond Trufant (hamstring), Justin Coleman (hamstring) and Jeff Okudah (hamstring) are unable to play in Week 2, the Lions defense could struggle to defend Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, which could lead to an even heavier workload for Stafford and the rest of the Detroit passing game.
