Matthew Stafford to start

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew will start in today’s game against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Stafford’s status came into question after he suffered an ankle injury in last week’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons. He was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday of this week but participated in a full practice on Friday.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press predicted in the NFP Friday Forecast that Stafford's performance will be the X-Factor in today's game.
