The first Pro Bowl appearance by a Detroit Lions quarterback in more than 40 years couldn’t have gone much better.

Matthew Stafford played most of the first half of Sunday’s Pro Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium and was one of the game’s standout performers, completing 15 of 25 passes for 316 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

The last Detroit quarterback to play in a Pro Bowl before Matthew Stafford was Greg Landry in 1971.
