Matthew Stafford: 'I don't have an accuracy problem'

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford says that he does not have a problem making accurate passes.

Matthew Stafford has insisted that he does not have a problem with accuracy, despite completing just over half of his passes at the weekend.

The Detroit Lions quarterback completed 28 of 51 attempts during the NFC North side's 27-24 defeat to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The 25-year-old told reporters: "I don't feel like I [have accuracy issues]. I feel like I have thrown the ball pretty good. Obviously, I missed a couple. I missed a 70-yarder to [Calvin Johnson] and that's like a long foul ball.

"You're not going to hit those all the time. Obviously every game there are throws you want back and things like that, but I feel like I'm putting the ball in some good spots for guys to make plays.

"Obviously I want to make every throw. I want to complete every pass. I want to throw it for as many yards as I can and as many touchdowns as I can to help our team win. I will continue to do that for as long as I'm playing the game. I just keep plugging away and trying to be as good as I possibly can be."

The Lions face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
