That's one way to put it. The defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of Matthew Stafford, who passed for 307 yards and 2 touchdowns, and Golden Tate, who caught passes for 132 yards and 2 touchdowns. In three of the Packers' first five games, that hasn't been the case.
"We'll just get back to work and make sure it doesn't happen again". While Mason Crosby (we'll get to him) was having the worst day of his career, the Packers special teams weren't too far behind, with multiple penalties on kickoffs costing the team great field position.
"You know we have to play better because last week was unacceptable", quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.
Of those three, Valdes-Scantling has the only production with two catches for 41 yards. You put all that together and it's a lot of points we gave them. You have to be able to play through injuries in games, play through injuries in practice, play through injuries that you're able to prepare for. Now the three rookies may go from being criticized in practice to playing very significant roles in an important game against a division rival.

He likely dealt extensively with former security chief Zhou Yongkang, now serving a life sentence for corruption. He is a senior Communist Party official in China and has formerly served as the deputy head of public security.
Still, there appears to be at least a decent chance that Green Bay will go into a key NFC North game without any of its top three receivers. He's now the WR47 in numberFire's season-long fantasy rankings. "So, it's trying to be smart on both sides of it, which I struggle with because I play through emotion".
However, as Moore dropped passes throughout the summer, Valdes-Scantling's consistency allowed him to jump to the top of the list. None of this means Rodgers is falling off that dreaded quarterback cliff yet, but it's fair to say that the fact he's never been properly surrounded by talent is starting to show.
"It's disappointing obviously: being inside, how I've been hitting the ball", Crosby said.
The Lions pass defense now ranks second in the league in yards allowed per game. Tight end Jimmy Graham is fourth on the team with 16 receptions and running back Ty Montgomery, who started his career as a receiver, is fifth with 11.
Even past year, when the Packers looked to be circling the drain, there was hope that Rodgers would come back from IR and save the season. Later in the fourth quarter, Clinton-Dix either didn't see Kevin King asking for help or didn't respond in time, resulting in the Packers giving up what would be a backbreaking touchdown.
