QBs in spotlight as Lions visit Saints (The Associated Press)

Drew Brees and Matthew Stafford may be separated only by age and career accomplishments, but two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks are primed to ignite an impressive fireworks show Sunday when it counts — in the fourth quarter. Stafford’s 7-4 Detroit Lions won five of their past six games to move to the top of the NFC North, and Brees’ 5-6 New Orleans Saints, coming off a 49-point, 555-yard shellacking of the Los Angeles Rams last week, need a victory at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (1 p.m. ET, FOX) to climb back to .500 for the second time this season and into the NFC playoff picture. Despite trailing at some point of the fourth quarter in all 11 games, the Lions came back to win seven times, a tribute to Stafford’s gunslinger arm and efficiency under pressure.
