The Lions are playing without All-Pro receiver
And his absence is being felt in the first half.
The Packers haven't shown any fear of the big play and are dedicating an extra safety to the box to stop the run game in most instances. They are playing man coverage on Lions receivers on the outside with a single-high safety.
As a result, the Lions run game has produced just 25 yards in the first half.
Stafford is 9-of-17 passing for 99 yards in the first half.
The Lions crossed the 50-yard line twice on offense in the first half.
The good news is the defense is playing terrific. The Lions held the Packers to just six points, which is the first time they've done that since Sept. 11 of 2005 (three points) at Ford Field.
Let's see what adjustments offensive coordinator Scott Linehan makes for the second half.
