You can give up all the yards you want in the middle with a 21-point lead, just can't let them score a TD.
Nice run stop. Fourth and 2.
Man, the corners are getting torched today.
Lack of pass rush is making the defense look bad. Stafford has all day to throw.
Rollins just missed his jam. He's got to get both arms into Boldin. He's playing him outside and yet he let him go outside. That's inexcusable. He was shaded outside.
He bit on a veteran move. He was worried about the middle when he needed to stay on his outside leverage.
I disagree. You want the Lions to have to use a lot of clock on these drives. Blitzes raise the chance you're going to give up a big play. Detroit ate up almost seven minutes with that drive.
Yards don't win games, points do. The Packers have made the Lions work for their points on all but one score. They need to be better, but if you're going to give up points, at least make the opposition work for it.
Except for the one right before the half.
Lacy is starting to warm up a little.
He's got 56 yards on 8 carries.
The Lions brought up a safety on that last run and the Packers still picked up 9 yards. Lacy is on a roll.
When you're running like that, it makes it so easy to pass.
Packers are down to the 32 in 3 minutes.
Or not. Now it's third and 10.
Cook and Ripkowski have been declared out for the game. Cook is an ankle and Ripkowski is a back.
Four-man rush, Rodgers has a first down scrambling, but this is coming back. Holding on Bulaga.
Third and 20 at the 42. They need to get enough yards for a field goal. Don't go for it all.
That will work. Decent scramble for 14 yards, although I'm sure McCarthy would prefer he slide next time.
Crosby will kick from 46 yards.
PACKERS 34, LIONS 17. 3:14 3RD
The first two drives took up just under 12 minutes.
