Packers seeing season slip away in Lions loss

There is not much hope among fans that the Green Bay Packers will have what it takes to make the playoffs after losing to the Detroit Lions 15-9 on Sunday, their fifth straight loss after starting the season 3-1. 

 

The offense was out of whack again as Aaron Rodgers played one of the worst games of his Packers career, throwing three interceptions, including two in the red zone. Despite his shortcomings, the Packers' defense was able to keep the Lions out of the endzone for much of the first half until Jared Goff threw his first of two touchdown passes inside the five-yard line to make it 8-0 at the break. 

 

The Packers would tighten the deficit in the third quarter with a touchdown pass to Allen Lazard to make 8-6, but the two teams would trade a touchdown for a field goal to lead the Lions to their second straight win over their NFC North rivals at Ford Field.

 

If the Packers struggled against the soft part of their schedule, their next few games will offer no comfort. They will face both the Dallas Cowboys and the Tennesee Titans next week.
