The Lions defense was the driving force behind the Lions victory having to overcome three turnover by quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The defensive front was all over Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers from the opening whistle while living up to their game changing reputation.

Although the Lions got the win it wasn’t all good news.  Middle Linebacker Stephn Tulloch injured himself while celecbrating a sack in the first quarter. Tulloch would not retrun to the game and his status is unknown.

  • From MLive: Detroit Lions Won’t Wait On Placekicker Decision

    "The Detroit Lions are not expected to wait long before determining the fate of struggling rookie placekicker Nate Freese. The seventh-round draft pick out of Boston College missed yet another field goal in Sunday’s 19-7 win against the Green Bay Packers. He misfired from 41 yards, while converting one from 30."

    From Detroit Lions Sign Seisay, Release Ogletree

    "Needing help at the cornerback position, the Detroit Lions promoted cornerback Mohammed Seisayfrom their practice squad today and released wide receiver Kevin Ogletree. Ogletree, who was signed during the season last year, was inactive for the first two games of the season and became expendable when injuries began to mount for the Lions."

    From MLive: Bad Blood Between Packers and Lions

    "The last time the Green Bay Packers visited Ford Field, an offensive lineman went out of his way to call the Detroit Lions’ defensive line “dirtbags.” Josh Sitton called them “scumbags,” too, just for good measure. And the Lions were clearly rankled."
