Packers Play Their Best At Lambeau Field

Sturgeon Bay, WI, United States /
Lions QB Mathew Stafford
Lions WR Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate

Leading 31-10 at the half, the Detroit Lions had no solution for Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and the high flying Packers offense Sunday. Green Bay held on to a 34-27 win at Lambeau Field on alumni day.

It marked only the second time in Aaron Rodgers career that he threw four or more touchdowns in the first half. He threw six against the Bears three years ago. Jordy Nelson hauled in two, Richard Rodgers caught one and Davante Adams had the other touchdown for the Packers.

The running game looked much improved Sunday as well. Coach Mike McCarthy did much less substituting in the back field and Eddie Lacy capitalized. Lacy carried the ball 17 times for 103 yards.

Green Bay heads into the bye week with a bevy of injured players. A week four bye is never a good thing but one could make the case the Green Bay needed it badly with the rash of injuries this team has experienced throughout the first three weeks.

The New York Giants will next play at Lambeau Field on Sunday, October 9 at 7:30 PM.
