The Detroit Lions sure are thankful for Matthew Stafford. Since they took the quarterback first overall in the 2009 draft, Stafford has gone on to set every major passing record in team history before his 30th birthday. He became the fastest QB in NFL history to 20,000 yards, and 25,000 yards, and 30,000 yards. And on Thanksgiving, he did it again, becoming the all-time leading passer in NFL history for a quarterback under 30 years old. Stafford, 29, headed into the game against Minnesota needing just 127 yards to break Peyton Manning's record (33,189).
