It's halftime in Detroit, and the Green Bay Packers are down 12-7 to the Lions. Here's a wrap-up of the good, bad and the ugly from the first half:

Good

Secondary

Calvin Johnson was held without a reception the entire first quarter, and rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix registered the first interception by a Packers safety since December 2, 2012 (Morgan Burnett against the Vikings). Shortly after, Matt Stafford aimed a pass to Calvin Johnson on a go route but Davon House made a leaping pick that was ruled down at the 1. The secondary has showed up so far in today's game against the Lions' weapons.


Bad

Opening drive

Through the first three games of the season, the Packers have struggled on their opening drives. Eddie Lacy fumbled on his second carry of the game (second play) that managed to give the Lions their first score of the game on a 39-yard return by safety Don Carey. It's been a tough start on opening of games for the Packers this season.


Ugly

Safety

The Packers caused the Lions to turn the ball over for the second time after House's INT. Lacy was hit in the end zone on the first play and gave Detroit a safety instead. DeAndre Levy blasted through the offensive line for the hit behind the line of scrimmage. The Lions were once 49 yards out, but after the safety, managed to still put points on the board from the 1. That safety gave the Lions the ball back and helped them put up three more points.
