NEW ORLEANS -- Matthew Staffords powerful arm and fourth-quarter poise delivered Detroit its most comfortable victory yet in a campaign that now looks destined to culminate in a playoff berth.Maybe a first division crown in two decades, too.Stafford passed for 341 yards and two touchdowns, Detroit became the first team in 60 Saints home games to stop Drew Brees from throwing a touchdown pass, and the Lions pulled away from mistake-prone New Orleans, 28-13 on Sunday.It feels good to come in here and play a little bit closer to a 60-minute game, Stafford said. Our defense played unbelievable.Stafford was at his best when the Saints were on the brink of seizing momentum early in the fourth quarter and locking the Lions into yet another high-stress affair.The Superdome crowd was deafening after Staffords second-down pass had been batted and nearly intercepted by Cameron Jordan in Detroit territory. New Orleans had scored on its previous drive to pull to 19-13, needed a stop on third-and-10 to set up Brees and Co. with a chance to drive for a go-ahead score.Stafford said he sensed the Saints were about to blitz, adding, We had a different play call and I checked to one I thought would be good.He thought right.Golden Tate broke into the clear behind cornerback B.W.
