This has been about as ugly as it gets for the Green Bay Packers. In the first half of today’s game against the Detroit Lions, the Packers have been outscored 21-0. They have been outgained in yardage 261 to 67. The Lions have 16 first downs to the Packers’ three.
Oh, and Aaron Rodgers left the game to be evaluated for a concussion.
It’s basically as bad as it could get for a Packers team playing out the string. Rodgers is 3-of-5 passing for 26 yards, while DeShone Kizer is five-of-12 for 44 yards in relief. The Packers have nine rushing yards, with Kizer picking up 11 on one run and Jamaal Williams going for minus-two yards on five carries.
The Packers also gave up a special teams touchdown, as the Lions used a fake field goal to get in the end zone. Matt Prater threw a perfect pass to Levine Toilolo for a touchdown, hopefully driving the final stake into Ron Zook’s Packers career.
