Whether or not you are a fan of Matthew Stafford on the football field, being a fan of his off the field is very easy.

Even though the Stafford's have had a rough year themselves it didn't stop them from bringing Christmas cheer to three boys who have lost their father.

Deana Harb posted the following caption on Facebook:

If you ever, for a second, worry about “goodness” in the world.
If you ever think professional athletes don’t connect with people...
Watch this.
When you’re in the NFL, and you and your wife come to the home of three boys that lost their father- boys that love the Lions...
When you stay and hang out, play Madden (and play as Matt Stafford, well- because you ARE Matt Stafford...)

People are so, so, good. And I know my cousin is beaming from Heaven.

According to CBSNews:

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife, Kelly Stafford, surprised a pair of fans whose father recently died. In a video shot by a family member, the Staffords are seen bringing Christmas gifts for the young brothers who were ecstatic to see the Pro Bowl ball-slinger. 

Deana Harb, who posted the viral video on Facebook last week, applauded Stafford for stopping by the house to give the kids a reason to cheer this holiday season. Harb says GoFundMe has also been set up for the boys and family. 

Detroit will end their season Sunday when they host the Green Bay Packers
