Packers Versus Lions Road Game Preview | Ticket King Green Bay

Packers versus Lions
The Green Bay Packers entered last week’s game as the double digit favorites as everyone thought it was going to be an easy win. A bad snap between Corey Linsley and Aaron Rodgers on the first play of the game caused a turnover and next thing they knew, the Packers found themselves trailing 21-3. They fought back and won the game 31-24, as Aaron Rodgers bomb to Jordy Nelson late in the third quarter proved to be the game winner. This week, the Packers travel to Detroit to take on the Lions. Here are our thoughts heading into the game.

Can we please have a game that starts smoothly out of the gate? The Packers fell behind early in week one in Seattle and never recovered. Then last week they turned the ball over on the first play of the game. It would be nice this week to see the Packers not make any errors early in the game.

Can Eddie Lacy return to form? Eddie Lacy, the 2013 offensive rookie of the year, hasn’t exactly gotten off to a roaring start. Lacy suffered a concussion in week one against Seattle. He returned to the lineup quickly but was ineffective last Sunday against the Jets. The Packers will need to him to be the running back everyone thinks he can be if they expect to win this game on Sunday in Detroit.

Can some other receiver other than Jordy Nelson please make a big play? So far this season, the Packers passing game has been the Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson show. Randall Cobb has caught a couple of touchdowns, but other than that he has been ineffective himself. The other receivers need to step up to the plate. Cobb, Devonte Adams, Jarrett Boykin, even perhaps Jeff Janis. Someone needs to step up and start making some big plays.

Can the defense finally settle down and have a good game? During the preseason, the Packers defense played much better than it did the last few years. However they have been unable to translate that to the regular season. First there was the debacle in Seattle to begin the season, and then last week they gave up 21 in the first half to the Jets. If you look at that game last week though, you could probably attribute the horrid start to the opening fumble. Had that fumble not occurred that game may have gone much differently. This defense, specifically the secondary, will have their hands full with Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson this week. At the end of the day, we believe the Packers win this game. Final Score: Packers 34, Lions 23.
