Part of me wants to dwell on the mistakes made by the Lions that cost them a shot against the Green Bay Packers. The other part of me simply wants to dismiss the 27-15 loss because the Packers are really that good.
Either way you look at the game, the facts are clear: the Lions had 11 penalties on top of three turnovers, all Matthew Stafford interceptions. The penalties, especially in the first half,
Aaron Rodgers torched the Lions for 307 yards and two touchdowns
stalled drives inside Packer territory and took points off the board. The turnovers cost the Lions dearly as well, as the Packers scored 17 points as a result.

Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay team has a fire under their butts that is keeping them going with absolutely no signs of stumbling in their future.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are trying to keep their perfect record intact as they take on Ndamukong Suh and the Detroit Lion's ninth-ranked NFL defense at Ford Field.
Aaron Rodgers took every hit the Detroit Lions could dish out. He just kept throwing — and winning. Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and the Green Bay Packers built a big lead in the third quarter.
Detroit trails 7-0, but has some big advantage statistically. The Lions holds a 15:43 to 9:26 edge in time of possession and 152-86 edge in offensive yards. Matthew Stafford threw an interception that led to Aaron Rodgers 3-yard TD pass to Greg Jennings.
A big problem for the Lions: the team's
As usual, Aaron Rodgers had a strong game, especially after a key second-half change by coach Mike McCarthy. For a change of pace, the pass defense was exceptional in bagging three interceptions and slowing down Calvin Johnson.
