In a game that meant NOTHING for either team. I was impressed with the NE game though.....
I think you will find, if you look, that the game was very significant to the Lions, just not to Green Bay, which makes his performance more credible than you imply.
Stafford was 36 for 59 with 520 yards in a 41-45 loss. Hardly a lay down and let it go performance by him.
Detroit was 10-5 going into that game and it had playoff significance for them. If they won they beat out Atlanta for the best wild card spot, playing a lower seeded team (Giants vs. Saints--maybe not such a big advantage, but Detroit did not lay down and die.)
