Another tough game for Matthew, but unlike last week, he played very well against the Vikings. The problem was the protection, or lack there of, that he received from his offensive line. The defensive pressure that he faced this week was relentless. Matthew was either hit, hurried or sacked on about 70% or more of his pass attempts. Those were 51 pass attempts by the way. I think that's the most I ever seen Matthew attempt in one game, and I've been watching his games since he was in high school.
Matthew's stats for the game were 29 of 51 for 224 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. The Lions lost 27-10.
