Detroit's backup quarterback will a backup to his backup on Thursday afternoon.
This will mark the second time in four weeks that Chicago will have avoided playing against Stafford. Driskel filled in for the veteran QB in Detroit's Week 10 loss at Chicago, his first of three starts for the Lions. In those three games (all losses), Driskel completed 59.1 percent of his passes for 685 yards, four TDs and four INTs. He was sacked 11 times, including six times last week, and added 151 yards on the ground.
At Purdue, Blough played in 44 games and started 36 over four seasons, leading the Boilermakers to a 13-23 record. He left school with 9,734 passing yards, 69 touchdowns and 43 interceptions, adding 13 scores on the ground. Blough lost the lone bowl game he started -- the 2018 Music City Bowl to Auburn.
Not much is known about what Blough is at the NFL level. He was so off the radar of draft-perts that he did not get a profile on NFL.com prior to the 2019 draft.
Families around the nation will know Blough's name after tomorrow.
