Matthew Stafford: Record against winning teams

Matthew Stafford is now the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams. This comes after nearly a decade as the starting quarterback for the Detroit Lions. Things with the Lions never panned out and Stafford is looking to alter legacy at 32 years old with Sean McVay and the Rams.

Let’s take a look at how many times the Detroit Lions won games against teams with a winning record with Matthew Stafford as their starting quarterback.

I started to dive into this stat for every quarterback because the new hot argument is to say that a certain quarterback didn’t beat anyone good. I often see people use this argument to say players like Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford are not good and just put up empty stats.

First off and most importantly, quarterback wins are a team statistic. Secondly, very few quarterbacks in the NFL have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league.
