Matthew Stafford set career highs and also broke some NFL rookie passing records as he guided the Detroit Lions to a thrilling last second win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Stafford’s 422 yards passing eclipsed the single-game mark for a rookie that was set by Matt Leinart of the Arizona Cardinals (405 yards) in a game on Nov. 26, 2006.
Detroit’s first-year QB also became just the second rookie quarterback in NFL history to throw five touchdowns in a game. He threw this ball to wide receiver Calvin Johnson on a 75-yard TD strike in the second quarter
