Packers come back to stun the Lions 23-22 on questionable call late

Packers come back to stun the Lions 23-22 on questionable call late

Mason Crosby played the hero on Monday night as the Packers escaped with a 23-22 win over the Lions. | Photo by Dylan Buell/ The Lions came to Lambeau and jumped on the Packers early, but let Aaron Rodgers and Co. hang around. That, as much as the late calls, cost them the game on Monday night. After more than two decades of dominance from the Packers at home against the Lions, the last two trips to Lambeau, and three of the last four, Detroit hopped the short flight back across Lake Michigan as victors. Now, two of those games heavily involved Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer, but the...

Lions at Packers, Week 6, 2019: Second-half game updates & discussion

Photo by Stacy Revere/ The Packers, trailing 13-10, will receive to start the second half. Drops. Referee confusion. Too-many-men penalties on special teams. Monday night’s showdown between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers had it all during the first half. After a slow start in which the Packers allowed 13 points while scoring none, the team battled back to cut the Lions’ lead to just three points. The comeback effort came while Aaron Jones and Jimmy Graham dropped would-be touchdowns and Geronimo Allison failed to corral several other passes from Aaron Rodgers. Still, the...

Lions at Packers, Week 6, 2019: First-half game updates & discussion

Photo by Dylan Buell/ The Packers return home to face the Lions on Monday Night Football. After a convincing victory in Arlington, Texas over the Dallas Cowboys, the 4-1 Green Bay Packers return home for a Week 6 matchup with their NFC North rivals, the Detroit Lions. For nearly a quarter century, the Packers won every game against the Lions at Lambeau Field, a historic 24-game run. Since then, Detroit has won the last four contests regardless of location, giving Green Bay a small taste of futility. Monday’s contest will also serve as Packers head coach Matt LaFleur’s first game...

Monday Cheese Curds: Is the Packers’ passing game ready for liftoff?

Monday Cheese Curds: Is the Packers’ passing game ready for liftoff?

Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ After five weeks, the offense is gliding but not year soaring Defense performing? Check. Running game kicking into gear? Check. Passing attack back to lethal levels? Stand by. As the Green Bay Packers prepare to face the Detroit Lions tonight, fans are wondering if this is the week the passing game finally hits its stride for a full game. There have been flashes of brilliance but also extended stretches of mediocrity and downright poor play which is unusual for an Aaron Rodgers-led attack yet also typical for a team installing a new offense with a new head...

NFL Week 6 Schedule: Wake up with Sunday morning NFC South football from London

NFL Week 6 Schedule: Wake up with Sunday morning NFC South football from London

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports It’s a full day of football from early in the morning until late at night. Good news, NFL fans — today will feature more than 12 straight hours of football. Yes, this week features an early morning kickoff from London, the second straight week with a game taking place across the pond. Last week, the Oakland Raiders did much of the NFC North a solid, upsetting the Chicago Bears 24-21 in London. This week, the contest pits NFC South rivals against one another as the 3-2 Panthers and 2-3 Buccaneers square off. Both teams have shown reasons for optimism, and...

Week 6 NFL Picks: Packers will get back to beating Lions at home

Week 6 NFL Picks: Packers will get back to beating Lions at home

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports Will the Packers move to 5-1 on the season? APC believes so. The Green Bay Packers have lost twice straight at Lambeau Field when hosting the Detroit Lions. This year, that trend reverses as the green and gold will get back to their winning ways against that rival on home turf — at least so say APC’s writers. This week’s NFL picks are in, and perhaps unsurprisingly, APC feels good about the Packers this week. They are favorites by four points in this week’s game, and they enter at 4-1, trailing only the 4-0 San Francisco 49ers in the race for the...

Packers-Lions Injury Report: Adams to miss second game, Daniels to miss homecoming

Dan Powers-USA TODAY NETWORK The Packers will be without their number one wide receiver for the second week in a row and Mike Daniels will miss his homecoming. The Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions meet on Monday night for the first time since week 17 of last season. That game was dominated by the Lions all day, where they won handily 31-0 over a struggling Packers team. This Monday will be their 180th meeting in their storied history. The Pack leads 100 to 72, however the Lions have won the last 4. Both teams come into week six with one loss each, and in first and second place...

Packers vs. Lions Week 6 Game Primer

Packers vs. Lions Week 6 Game Primer

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Get ready for the Packers’ lone Monday Night Football game of the season. For over two decades, the Green Bay Packers dominated the Detroit Lions in Wisconsin. Every time the Lions came to town, it was effectively a guaranteed victory for the Packers, all throughout the 1990s, 2000s, and early 2010s. It was a 23-year streak, running from 1992 to 2014 before the Lions finally broke through in 2015 with a win at Lambeau Field. Since then, it has been a weird, rough stretch for the Packers when hosting the Lions, who now have three wins at Lambeau in their last four...

Friday Cheese Curds: Timeline still unclear for Davante Adams’ return

Photo by Stacy Revere/ The Packers could very well be without their star wide receiver for the second straight game While we will have to wait for further official word, don’t expect to see Davante Adams on the field Monday night against the Detroit Lions. Adams spoke with the media Wednesday and said he’s recovering from a “major injury” and while he didn’t eliminate the possibility of playing Monday, there was really no optimism in his words either. The star receiver really didn’t have a timetable for a return either. “I can’t really tell you when I’m going to...
