Matthew Stafford had a night to forget Monday against the Jets, who picked off the Detroit Lions quarterback four times and forced him from the game briefly when two New York defenders sandwiched him in the third quarter.

The veteran passer was also the victim of friendly fire when left tackle Taylor Decker kicked him in the left knee earlier in the game, which Stafford called "a complete accident."

Despite the pounding he took, Stafford said Tuesday he's ready for a Week 2 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

"I'm doing OK," Stafford said, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. "I'm feeling healthy and good to go."

"I was just locked out on my left leg and my knee just kind of, leg just kind of hyper-extended just a little bit," Stafford said of the Decker collision. "Probably scared me more than anything. That's a common way people (get) really hurt, so I was lucky to get out of there with not too much (damage)."

Stafford only threw 10 total interceptions in 2017, so the Lions are likely hoping his turnover-laden night against the Jets is an aberration.
