Matthew Stafford Almost Made a Block for Ameer Abdullah

Remember last Thursday when fragile Michael Vick threw down a key block on a Le’Veon Bell touchdown run? Yeah? Well, Matthew Stafford reminded us tonight that not every quarterback is down to sacrifice their body for a few yards.
As you can see below, Stafford thought better of making a block for Ameer Abdullah despite the running back’s efforts to evade multiple defenders and switch directions:

People will definitely give Stafford crap for this, but we don’t blame him one bit for protecting himself considering how dreadful the Lions’ offensive line has been this year. Stafford’s job is to make passes, not potentially hurt himself charging into a mob of defenders for a block.
