Former NFL cornerback Richard Sherman cast shadows at Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford while watching him in the season opener against the Buffalo Bills.
As Super Bowl 56 champions, the Los Angeles Rams officially opened the 2022 season with starting quarterback Matthew Stafford. It was far from the performance Stafford had envisioned, as he was mercilessly sacked by the Buffalo Bills defense and threw multiple interceptions.
During the game, Richard Sherman, former NFL cornerback and current Thursday Night Football analyst, responded to a tweet from ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky about a Stafford throw that became an interception by Buffalo’s Dane Jackson. Sherman called it “Stafford is Stafford”.

Orlovsky responded, saying that he “doesn’t have to start 2022 like this.” That’s when Sherman responded, mentioning how Stafford led the league in interceptions last season. The exchange then continued.
It was a true night to forget for Stafford. Although the Bills offense turned the ball over three times in the first half. That would normally be the path to victory for the opposing team. Instead, the Rams could only pick up 10 points to go into a tie with the Bills at halftime. When the second half started, it was all Buffalo.
Stafford threw three interceptions during the night, two of which came on passes that were tipped in the air. Additionally, he’s been sacked seven times, including twice by former teammate and current Bills linebacker Von Miller.
It was a poor game for Stafford and will be a topic of conversation for the next two days as Week 1 gets underway on Sunday 11th September.
