Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford should be thankful he didn’t break his neck Sunday in a loss to the Vikings.

Why do I say that? It’s pretty simple. His offensive line allowed him to get absolutely mauled, and gave up ten sacks, which is a record for the Vikings.

The tape is scarier than anything you would have seen during the Halloween season. Give it a watch below.

I don’t know what the remedy here is for the Lions, but Stafford is going to end the season on a stretcher if they can’t get it figured out quickly. (RELATED: The Detroit Lions Start The Season With One Of The Worst Games Of Football Ever Played [VIDEOS])

He got sacked ten times! Ten times! Are you kidding? He’s getting murdered behind the line of scrimmage.

We’re not paying Stafford millions and millions of dollars so that he can run for his life every time he’s snapped the ball. I would be irate if I was him, and I would lose it on every single person responsible for not providing proper protection.

The Lions need to keep him upright and capable of throwing the ball, or we’re screwed. Honestly, I might not take the field again if I was playing behind that line and protection.

He’s one bad shot away from ending his season.
