Another rough day for Matthew. He re-injured his left shoulder, and this time he did not return to the game. He said that he didn't think he injured it any worse, but that it was as painful as when he injured it against Cleveland. He doesn't know if he'll play next week, but he did say that he'll consider sitting out to rest his shoulder. We'll probably know more as the week progresses since he'll undergo additional exams on Monday.
Matthew was 11 of 26 for 143 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. It was the first time this season that Matthew didn't have over 30 pass attempts. The 54-yard touchdown to Calvin Johnson was a thing of beauty though. Check it out. By the way, Matthew's TD pass to Johnson was his 13th of the season, and it set a new franchise record for TD passes in a season by a rookie quarterback.
