Lions vs Packers Preview

The defending NFC North champs started their season off incredibly strong on the road against the Minnesota Vikings last week, winning 43-34. Aaron Rodgers looked like Superman yet again, throwing for 364 yards and four touchdowns while putting up a rating of 127.5. His line also kept him clean — he wasn’t sacked once — and this week, he’ll be facing a Detroit Lions team that managed just one sack against Mitchell Trubisky in a 27-23 loss to the Chicago Bears Week 1.

The Lions were this close to beating the Bears, but they gave up three fourth quarter touchdown passes, and rookie D’Andre Swift dropped a game-winning score from quarterback Matthew Stafford with just six seconds left in the game. Still, Detroit isn’t dwelling on what happened last week.

“It doesn’t matter if you lose it, win it, win it by 10, lose it by 10, whatever it is, lose a close one, win a close one,” Stafford said this week. “You’ve got to move on to the next one. Shoot, lucky for us, Green Bay gets our attention pretty quick.”

The Packers swept the Lions in 2019, but they won both games by four points, and head coach Matt LaFleur seems to know there was a bit of luck involved. “It was pretty much a miracle that we were able to win both those games,” LaFleur said about his previous bouts with Detroit last year, adding: “they definitely could have beaten us twice last year. So you know we’ve got a big task in front of us.”

On defense, the Packers still seem to have some issues with stopping the run. Minnesota running backs Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison combined for 100 yards and two touchdowns on just 18 carries. That’s 6.25 yards per rush allowed, and that’s not including the 34 yards Kirk Cousins had on four carries. If the Lions can get running back Adrian Peterson going, he could give the Packers defense more than a few fits.

Detroit will be without top wideout Kenny Golladay again, so Stafford will have to get creative with his weapons. One could be rookie Quintez Cephus, who Stafford spoke very fondly of this week.

“He’s done a nice job,” Stafford said about the rookie wideout. “Obviously, I missed him on a couple, there’s a couple I’m sure he wishes he had back. That’s kind of how it goes when you have a young guy in there and you’re trying to get to know him and learn ’em, and he’s trying to learn the game without a preseason or any of that stuff. He did a great job.”

But even if they can get their timing right, they still may not be enough for Rodgers and company, who will be mercifully attacking a depleted and diminished secondary that will also be without first round draft pick Jeff Okudah yet again.
