Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford's night -- and preseason -- might be over. He had a good night against Jacksonville, completing 11 of 15 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns without Calvin Johnson. Good performance by Stafford, who was replaced by Dan Orlovsky.

Decent first half for Matthew Stafford. Threw a good ball on a TD to Golden Tate and put the ball in a good spot to Corey Fuller on a score. Detroit Lions defense struggled, allowing six third down conversions for Jacksonville. Jaguars 14, Lions 13
