    The Lions are now fully in the hunt! After completing a Win Sunday verses division rival Green Bay Packers. The Lions are now 8-4 on the season, and sit behind the Bears who are 9-3. Currently the Lions are on a 3 game winning streak. with wins against the Steelers, Buccaneers, and Packers.

    The Bears are on a roll and with a very tough schedule ahead for the Lions, it will make it very hard to make to playoffs. The Lions will have the Eagles, then the Ravens both visiting in the next 2 weeks. Then will travel to Minnesota, to take on Adrian Petterson and the Vikings. Nothing will be easy for the Lions, they will have a hard road to hoe!

    Now lets get to highlights of the game. Lions struggled picking up any yards on the 1st 2 plays of the game. However converted on a 3rd and 13, with a pass to Calvin Johnson. After a couple of 1st downs Stafford dropped back and somehow missed his read, and threw his first interception of the day. With a pass that was intended for TE Scheffler.

    Packers march down the field, but after some very nice plays one being a Sack for a loss of 7 yards by LB Quincy Black, forced the Pack into a 3rd and 17 position. Chris Houston would break up the next pass to Cobb and force Green Bay to Punt.

    Next Detroit possession, would not last long at all. Stafford would drop back and try to hit Calvin on a deep streak into double coverage, that would end up being intercepted for #2 on the day.

    Once again the Lions would hold Green Bay and force a punt.

    Lions would finally get something going and drive down the field. Mixing it up, throwing the Pack off, they could not tell if the Lions were going to pass or run. Stafford would connect with Scheffler on a 11 yard pass for the Touchdown! Only 1:10 left in 2nd QT.


    Pack would once again have a hard time getting anything going. Would be forced to punt. With only :29 sec

    Lions would take the Punt with no gain. From the 36 yard line and all 3 Time Outs left. Stafford would connect with Corey Fuller on a 28yard pass. Then Stafford connects with Broyles on a 16 yard pass. Lions would try one more pass, but would be incomplete and would settle for a 41 Yard Field Goal by David Ackers

    HALFTIME

    After the Half the Pack would quickly go 3 and out yet again.

    Lions next possession Stafford would be sacked for a 10 yard loss by Clay Matthews, then on 3rd and 17 Stafford would make his worst mistake of the game forcing another pass that wasnt there. That pass ends up going for Six in the opposite direction!



    Lions would then march down the field with ease yet again. Then Stafford hands off to Bush and he would take it 25 yards for the Touchdown!


    After the Score, Kick return specialist Brandon Banks would step up big time, and go 105 yards for gashing up the seams for the Touchdown!

    17-14 Det, with 1:45 in the 3rd


    Lions would convert a couple of 1st downs but, then would be force to punt. With a Great punt pinning Green Bay back on their own on 13 yard line. However, the Pack would put together a very impressive drive going the length of the field and using up over 3 and half min off the clock.
    Eddy Lacy would punch it in from 5 yards out for the touchdown.



    Lions would take over on their 20 with only 1:58 left but all 3 Time outs. Staffords first pass is almost picked off, but dropped by the safety. After 2 runs by Bush and picking up the 1st down. Stafford then hooks up with Fuller on a 20 yard pass, ball on the across the 50.
    Then to Johnson to the Sideline on a 15 yard pass.
    Stafford finds Bush for another 10 yard pass.
    Lions in the Hurry up with only :48 seconds remaining.
    HB draw by Bush gets them down to the 9 yard line.
    Stafford hooks up with Broyles, as hes taken down at the 1yard line. Green Bay burns a Time Out.

    TOUCHDOWN! ON a QB Sneak by Stafford. DETROIT GOES UP 24-21 Only 20seconds remaing.

    Squib Kick

    Defense steps up and holds them. Delmas picks off Rodgers last pass to seal the Win!







    GOOD GAME CSteud and good luck rest of the way! Look forward to all of our match ups!

    Good game Heath, the pick 6 and kick return was the only reason I was able to keep up. I finally put together a drive late but the defense couldn't get you off the field all day and that was the difference at the end.
