Packers first start enough to beat the Lions (0:49)

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers DT Mike Daniels had a question in the locker room: "Are we still number one in run defense? We only have up 50 (yards). Things are changing around here."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers on whether the offense is back: "I don't give a you-know-what if the offense is back. We've got to win. I care about winning."

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Rodgers on Jordy Nelson's two-touchdown game: "It's fun to get him going like that." He called the 49-yard completion a vintage Nelson play.

ESPN Stats and Information

Explosive first half followed by an unimpressive second half leaves the Packers at 2-1 heading into their bye week after a 34-27 victory over the Detroit Lions. The good news: Three more home games immediately after the bye.

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Packers hold off Lions 34-27. The ViewFromVegas is they cover as closing 6.5-point home favorites, but a lot of people pushed when the line was 7 (and the Lions covered in the Westgate SuperContest at +7.5).

Eddie Lacy goes over the 100-yard mark. That's 103 yards on 17 carries. His first 100-yard game since Dec. 13, 2015 against the Cowboys.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Marvin Jones fantasy owners are racking up points today. The Lions WR has 205 yards and two touchdowns on just six receptions (34.2 yards per catch). Great fit for this offense.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Those looking for a complete performance from the Packers won't get it this week. Yes, the offense started fast, but the defense couldn't finish off the Lions and now it's a ball game with 3:34 to play.
