The Packers' defense held things together as Aaron Rodgers struggled early in the game. Rodgers and the offense got things together in the second half, hitting on a couple of big plays, including an 83-yard touchdown pass to James Jones late in the third quarter. Rodgers had just 88 passing yards in the first half. He ended with 274 yards on 20-of-30 passing.
The Packers' dominance over Detroit in the state of Wisconsin continued as they extended the streak to 22 games.
Here is what else we learned:
- The Lions' secondary held up well early but allowed too many big plays in the second half. The lack of pressure from the front four played a role in those plays.
