  • Rodgers and King taken off of Packers injury list

Detroit have taken charge with a 24-0 advantage over Green Bay. Packers Defense: Despite the 24-0 score at halftime, the Packers defense had allowed less than 200 yards to the Lions and was actually not playing that poorly. Because I feel extremely good this year with how I'm striking it. "It was one of those days that just wasn't there". Like a broken record, in nearly each of the last eight seasons we've counted the Packers out and openly questioned whether Mike McCarthy is wasting Rodgers prime. "We've been kind of a one-half team: one good half and one not-so-good half". He is the first kicker to miss four field goals and an extra point in a game since Rolf Benirschke of the Chargers did it in 1980 (Crosby actually made a meaningless 41-yarder in the final seconds). Both of their collective shortcomings didn't lead to the Packers' second loss of the season, but both veterans left a lot on the field that could've helped change the course of the game in one way or another, even in the slightest. After hurting his left knee in the opener, Rodgers practiced only on Saturdays in Weeks 2 and 3 but did not miss a game. Just ask Lions coach Matt Patricia.

The Packers host C.J. Beathard's San Francisco 49ers on "Monday Night Football" in Week 6, while the Lions enter the bye week with some confidence after beating the Packers in a game Rodgers starts and finishes at Ford Field for only the second time.

Cobb will sit out his second straight game due to a hamstring injury.

"It was big to chew up some time to give our defense a little bit of a rest and come away with some points", Stafford said.

Starting receivers Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison are both questionable.

Allison is averaging 12.6 FanDuel points per game this season, with 19 receptions (29 targets) for 289 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Emery unsure on Arsenal's title chances
The breakdown of Ramsey's contract talks is another thorny issue that Emery has so far navigated successfully. It will be interesting to see whether Emery makes his next team selection based on reputation or on form.

"We've been a one-half team all year", he said. Detroit's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Green Bay defensive front that amassed seven sacks against Buffalo, so we'll see if they are up to the task.

The Lions, who didn't face Rodgers previous year, have won three straight in the series for the first time the 1990-91 seasons.

After five dropped passes and two turnovers against Buffalo, the offense's performance is going to have to improve headed into Sunday at Detroit.

"They're getting better", Rodgers said.

"At some point in the season, your young players are going to play, and our receiver position is potentially in that situation", McCarthy said.
