The Detroit Lions have completely dominated the first half of football vs. the Green Bay Packers today on Thanksgiving.
The Packers should be very thankful for three Detroit first-half turnovers and a special teams miscue that have kept the score as close as it is.
The Lions have 340 yards of offense compared to only 43 for the Packers. The Lions defense has held Green Bay to just three first downs and 19 passing yards. The Lions have 17 first downs on offense.
A missed 30-yard chip-shot field goal by
Bush and receiver Jeremy Ross have scored the two Lions touchdown in the half. Ross, a former Packer, has a 24-yard run, a 5-yard touchdown catch and a 35-yard punt return so far.
On defense, Ziggy Ansah has two first-half sacks. That gives him four over his last six quarters.
The Lions now have 16 turnovers over their last 18 quarters of play.
It’s a dangerous game the Lions are playing keeping Green Bay so close, when they’ve clearly outplayed them in most aspects of the game.
