It was a record-breaking game for Matthew, and a great win for the Lions, who won 38-37. Matthew threw the game-winning TD with zero seconds left on the clock even after injuring his left shoulder during the previous play. He was 26-of-43 for 422 yards with five touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer efficiency rating of 112.7.
The 422 yards was a franchise record for the most passing yards in a win, and Matthew became the youngest quarterback in NFL history to toss five touchdown passes in a single game. It's also only the second time that a Lions quarterback threw for 400-plus yards in a win, and it was only the second time in history that a rookie quarterback threw for five TDs in one game. Scott Mitchell threw for over 400 yards in a Lions win back in 1995, and Ray Buivid of Chicago threw five TDs in one game in 1937.
Initial X-rays on Matthew's shoulder were negative. According to head coach Jim Schwartz more tests will be done.
