At halftime of their week two contest, the Green Bay Packers lead the Detroit Lions 17-14. Green Bay fought back from a 14-3 deficit early to score a pair of second-quarter touchdowns on Aaron Rodgers touchdown passes.
The Packers’ defense has struggled mightily, giving up conversions on Detroit’s first five third-down attempts before forcing a stop on a third-and-25. Detroit got first-half touchdowns from Kerryon Johnson and Marvin Jones to take an early 14-3 lead, but the Packers clawed back with a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Aaron Jones to pull back within 14-10. Green Bay pulled ahead with 14 seconds left in the half on an 11-yard scoring toss from Rodgers to Robert Tonyan.
In the first half, Rodgers went 12-for-18 for 127 yards and the two touchdowns. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams have 35 rushing yards apiece while Davante Adams has three catches for 36 yards.
The Packers will receive the opening kickoff of the second half with a chance to double up around the break.
