The Green Bay Packers (1-1) used a big second half to take down the Detroit Lions (0-2) at Lambeau Field, 35-17, on Monday Night Football.
The Packers were brutal in the first half, in my opinion, but played better against an inferior Lions team in the second half. There’s still lots of room for improvement on both sides of the ball, but Green Bay shutout Detroit 21-0 in the second half for the win.
Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-27 passes for 255 yards and four touchdowns.
Devante Adams had eight receptions for 121 yards.
Aaron Jones had 115 total yards and four touchdowns.
I really hope that this is Joe Barry’s lone season in Green Bay. Although the defense had a handful of nice moments in the second half tonight, it’s been pretty bad through two games.
Also, talking about the defense, Kevin King needs to go.
The Packers will have another prime time game as they travel to Levi Stadium to play the Santa Clara 49ers (2-0) on Sunday Night Football on September 26th. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:20 PM (Central Time) and will be televised on NBC.
