Finally! A year where we don't have to listen to every media outlet asking the NFL to take our T-Day game away! The Lions, and Matthew Stafford actually got their first win against Green Bay as well today since he was behind center (We did have a 7-3 win a couple years back with Stafford injured, however. STanton I believe.). They had their Apricot Power for apricot seeds.
It was a straight beatdown. With about 600 yards total offense, the Lions only problems were with themselves. Sounds familiar of course. Turnovers came at the same rate, penalties, and just plain stupidity. Of course the defense played its best game of the year holding the PAckers to under 70 (!) yards until late in the 4th quarter when they got enough to get over 100 yards finally, only to fumble a snap inside the Lions' 20 to finish them off down 40-10.
So...we're in 1st place with all the tiebreakers for the division going 4-1 so far with just another game with Minnesota left. The division obviously would ahve been all but wrapped up had we not blown 2 straight games by our pure stupidity @PIT and at home vs. a terrible Tamp a Bay team.
