Packers fall to the Lions 34-20
Green Bay and Detroit kickoff from Lambeau Field at 7:15
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WMTV) - The Green Bay Packers fell to the Detroit Lions 34-20 during Thursday Night Football.
Things looked like they may start in Green Bay’s favor, after they picked off Jared Goff on the Lions’ first drive of the game. But, it went downhill afterwards, as the Lions rolled over the Packers and dominated the first half.
The Lions (3-1) beat the Packers (2-2) for a fourth straight time, a streak that also includes the final game of last season, when Detroit denied Green Bay a playoff spot in Aaron Rodgers’ last game with the Packers.
The Packers are coming off a thrilling, come-from-behind 18-17 win against the Saints on Sunday. The Lions beat the Falcons 20-6 on Sunday.
Running back Aaron Jones may play, while left tackle David Bakhtiari will miss at least four weeks with on-going knee issues that stem from an ACL he tore in December 2020.
This is the first time in 37 years where the Packers are not favored at home against the Lions. Detroit won the last meeting with Green Bay, ending the Pack’s 2023 season in Aaron Rodgers’ last game.
