This is how you know things are going your way: Matthew Stafford derped up a fumble at the goal line on Sunday, and the ball dropped right into his hands for a touchdown anyway.
Here's the line from the box score:
1-1-CHI 1(6:12) (No Huddle) M.Stafford up the middle to CHI 1 for no gain (L.Briggs). FUMBLES (L.Briggs), and recovers at CHI 0. TOUCHDOWN.
Oh, but that's so bland and boring. Let's see how this one REALLY went down:
Yep, Stafford coughs up a fumble, catches his own fumble, and falls forward into the end zone. That's how it's going for the Lions this year. Which is a marked contrast from previous years, when Stafford would have fumbled and then gotten his helmet kicked off.
