Packers offensive woes continue in loss to Lions
The Green Bay Packers offense struggled yet again on Sunday in a 19-7 road loss to Detroit on Sunday afternoon. Aaron Rodgers was held to under 200 yards passing for the second time in three weeks and a solid defensive effort was wasted as Green Bay fell to 1-2 on the year.
