08:06 AM ET 09.13 | Playing from behind has its perks, most notably some gaudy passing stats that have led to a share of an NFL record. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford tied Drew Brees' mark with his fourth straight 350-yard passing game in Sunday's come-from-behind win over the St. Louis Rams. Stafford completed 32 of 48 passes for 355 yards with three interceptions. His last 80 yards came on the game-winning touchdown drive in the final 2 minutes. ... The Lions play the 49ers on Sunday night -- almost certainly the best defense the Lions will face this year. Last year, Stafford threw for 293 yards against the 49ers, but he completed just 28 of 50 passes and was sacked five times.

A come from behind win versus the Rams is not a good sign. It will be a come from behind loss to the 49ers this week.

Jim Schwartz's head will explode, and we'll get to see it a few hundred times on ESPN on Monday.

It could be a come-from-behind sack that puts Stafford into the familiar horizontal position that we saw him in a couple of years ago.

"Most consecutive 350-yard passing games." What kind of stupid record is that?

OK, you're passing well, but it tells me that your running game stinks and your defense can't stop the other team, so no matter how many yards you gain you can't nail the coffin shut and you have to keep passing.

It's like a punishment from Dante's Inferno: he has to keep passing for all eternity and it's never enough. Wait a minute... Detroit *IS* a level of the Inferno.

You're right. Their running game keeps passing...away.

She would fit right in with the Detroit "kick 'em while they're down" defense.
