The Detroit Lions opened their regular season at home on Sunday, September 10th, with a hard-fought victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Recently made the highest paid player in National Football League history after signing a massive six-year, $135 million contract late last month, the 29-year old passer responded with a MVP-like outing against Arizona.

With the Lions up 21-17 in the fourth quarter, Matthew Stafford unleashed a bomb from midfield.

Stafford finished his day 29-41 for 292 yards, four touchdowns and the one interception. This is Ameer Abdullah's time to shine. The Lions were in scoring range, so the swing in momentum here was huge. This is an area the Lions' must improve on moving forward. With Johnson struggling to find room, the team turned to Carson Palmer, but the veteran quarterback has two interceptions and no touchdowns.

Arizona was a trendy Super Bowl pick last season but a dismal start to the year quickly derailed those plans and now they are left trying to play their way back into that conversation, but they certainly have the pieces to do some damage, led by superstar running back David Johnson. Arizona may have one of the more balanced rosters in the NFC, though they know their window is closing with some of the older players on their team. The Cardinals must be sure to tackle well.

Theo Riddick and Marvin Jones also had touchdown catches for the Lions, who visit the New York Giants next week on Monday Night Football.

The Lions offense responded by stalling out again as the game looked to be slipping away, before the defense delivered yet another game-altering turnover.
