Matthew Stafford finally won a playoff game. He never accomplished that feat in 12 seasons as the Detroit Lions quarterback, but Stafford helped the Rams easily advance over the crumbling Arizona Cardinals in the final game of the wild-card round.
The reaction from Lions fans, media and former players on Stafford getting the win with the Rams came flowing in quickly. Because the game was a blowout, many of them came in well before the end of the game.
Most of the reactions were positive in nature and happy for the longtime Lions QB. Some former teammates in Detroit even chimed in with congratulations for No. 9.
I’m so Happy for Stafford!! My guy deserves this!!!

Regardless of what happens after this, Matthew Stafford has proved a lot of people wrong this season. He’s won big games. He won his division. He won a playoff game. All in his first season away from Detroit.
I tried to tell you he wasn’t the problem in Detroit. That’s my guy.

All you idiots I actually spent time arguing with that said Stafford was the problem and needed to be traded.
Deadass his first year out of Detroit he wins his first division title and playoff game.

Congratulations to #9️⃣ Matthew Stafford finally gets his first playoff win and did it with a near perfect game. I wish it could have happened for him in Honolulu Blue, but I'm still happy for him. pic.twitter.com/ziQjcjtmUP

Bottom line without any of the other nonsense, I’ve always been a big Matthew Stafford guy, he fought his ass off for over a decade for my favorite team & was the least of their problems most of the time , & I am absolutely happy for him now. Any real Lions 🦁 fan should be too pic.twitter.com/KWPak5AOB9
