Helluva fake block by Matthew Stafford. Yeah, he's not going up against Parys Haralson. https://t.co/ZcMC4hayPn

Fortunately for Stafford, Haralson didn’t take a shot back at Stafford, deciding to chase Reggie Bush down instead. In the end, that play lost four yards, so as entertaining as it was to watch it backfired in the end. Apparently, Stafford was mic’d during the game and had some comments to add about the play.
Matthew Stafford adds to his NFL Films legacy. He was mic'd up for this game. Asked him about it after: "They should be paying me."
