The Lions fell to the Green Bay Packers on last night’s edition of Monday Night Football (Sept. 20).
The Packers came on strong and for good reason. The team had just come off a mortifying opening-week loss, so they had a chip on their shoulder. Last week, the Packers lost to the New Orleans Saints, 38-3, so they showed up angry and ready.
Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers ended the game 10th all-time in passing yards with 51,633. Detroit’s Jared Goff successfully completed 13 of his first 14 passes, but it wasn’t enough. The Lions actually led going into halftime, but Green Bay dominated in the second half. Green Bay defeated the Lions 35-17.
The Lions’ next game is Sunday (Sept. 26) against the Ravens.
