Because the starters need the work.
Emmett Cleary in for the Lions. Perry should be looking for a sack here.
Looks like Lions are going to give him help.
McCarthy didn't throw the challenge flag. I never saw whether Tate got both feet in.
The Lions are now 2 for 4 on third downs. The Packers are 1 for 4.
Packers a step too slow again. King had a chance to make a huge play and Stafford threw a perfect ball to Tate. Lions are now 3 of 5 on third down.
The Lions are just toying with the Packers now with all their jet sweeps and play action. They seem to be able to move the ball at will through the air.
Vince Biegel on the field at LOLB.
Randall gets hurt a lot. He usually comes back in the game a short time later.
Lenzy Pipkins is in at slot corner for Randall.
It's not a lack of talent.
That was pathetic. That was scheme. That was the Lions totally suckering the Packers to one side and going the other direction.
You can put that on Capers as far as I can tell. It's like the Packers have no idea what Detroit is going to do.
13 plays, 91 yards, 6:50.
Matthew Stafford is 12 of 14 for 137 yards and a touchdown, 131.2 rating.
Brett Hundley is 7 of 10 for 27 yards, 72.9 rating.
I don't like to make predictions at mid-season. I'll just say if this stuff continues, I'd be shocked if he was back.
Davis gets crushed at the 15-yard line. Lions are winning every facet of the game.
