After a disappointing at home against the Tennessee Titans, many fans were hoping to see Detroit Lions get back on track against the Green Bay Packers, but not such luck, as the Packers held off the Lions 34-27.

Despite the closeness of final score, the Packers (2-1) led 31-10 at the half before the Lions slowly chipped away.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford was very efficient in the loss. He completed 28 of his 41 pass attempts for 385 yards with three touchdowns and an interception that got taken out of the hands of tight end Eric Ebron.

Last week, in the loss to Tennessee, it was 17 penalties for 137 yards that killed the Lions. This week, it was big plays given up by their defense that hurt, as the Aaron Rodgers, who threw for 205 yards and four touchdowns burned the secondary with big plays, and Eddie Lacy ran for 103 yards on 17 carries.

Injury wise, safety Tavon Wilson left in the first quarter with a neck injury.

This is another blow for a defense already without lineman Ezekiel Ansah and linebacker DeAndre Levy.
