GIF: Matthew Stafford eludes Damontre Moore to hit Megatron wide open downfield

Matthew Stafford looked incredibly efficient during the first quarter of the Lions’ season opener against the Giants. On the above play the Lions’ signal caller elluded Damontre Moore, throwing across his body to find a wide open Calvin Johnson downfield for the touchdown.

It wasn’t pretty but we’ll take it which is pretty much the only way you could sum up the Tigers’ 11-4 extra innings win over the Indians Thursday night to wrap up a 4-game series in Cleveland. 11 runs though?
