Kris Durham has filled the shoes of Nate Burelson. After catching three passes for 30 yards against the Packers last week, he had a career-best eight catches for 83 yards Sunday. Stafford’s former Georgia Bulldog teammate is starting to groove.
“I’m definitely getting a rhythm,” Durham said. “I’ve been working a lot more with Matthew the last couple of weeks, so I am starting to get more of a rhythm with him. I need to help him out more.”
“He was winning his matchups,” said Stafford, who threw passes to Durham when the two were at Georgia, as well. “He’s battling through stuff (leg injury), too. Kris is a reliable guy. He’s going to be in the right spot and he’s going to make plays. The more he plays, the more confidence he gets.”
Another great target has been draft pick Joseph Fauria who has had quite the rookie year. The former UCLA Bruin had three touchdowns today. You have to love this passing attack by the Detroit Lions.
