28. Detroit Lions (28)
Playing without Matthew Stafford for a second week in a row obviously put the Detroit Lions at a somewhat disadvantage when facing the Dallas Cowboys, but also for the second week in a row, Jeff Driskel played with all sorts of toughness.
A few months ago, Driskel seemed like the last quarterback that would be capable of keeping the Lions in a difficult game like this.
And while it was frustrating to watch Detroit come up short 35-27 to the Cowboys, at least this should make the Lions feel a little extra confident in their offense being able to produce during the final stretch.
No one needs to explain the importance of losing a quarterback like Stafford since the former No. 1 pick has proven on numerous occasions to be one of the toughest quarterbacks across the NFL.
Unfortunately with their sixth loss in seven games, any chance of making the playoffs are quickly slipping away for the Lions, although plenty could still happen if Detroit receives help from numerous teams across the NFC.
At least if Driskel is needed to continue running the offense as a result of Stafford’s back still being an issue, the last two weeks have helped Detroit feel somewhat better about their quarterback situation.
