The Detroit Lions got off to a hot start on “Monday Night Football” against the Green Bay Packers, but Aaron Rodgers and Co. have battled back in a big way.
It was a tale of two quarters in the opening half. The Lions scored 10 points on their first two drives, both sparked by huge pass plays. Meanwhile, the Packers went three and out on their first drive and then turned the ball over with an Aaron Jones fumble on their second drive. The Lions quickly established a 13-0 lead.
The Packers then refocused, and embarked on a 14-play, 60-yard drive which was capped off with a five-yard catch and run by Jamaal Williams. Jones dropped a wide-open touchdown pass, Jimmy Graham dropped a would-be score, but the Lions had too many men on the field on fourth and goal, which set the Packers up with a fresh set of downs. Still, the Lions secured a three-point halftime lead.
The Packers turned their first possession of the second half into three points, as they tied the game at 13 apiece. The Lions then went three and out, but the Packers fumbled the ensuing punt, and Matt Prater converted on a field goal, and then another, his third and fourth of the game. Let’s see if the Packers can come back, facing a six-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter.
