The Detroit Lions received bad news before the game when it was announced that star receiver Calvin Johnson would be inactive with a knee injury. His absence was apparent, too, as the offense struggled to move the ball all game long en route to a 22-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
The Lions defense did their best to keep it close and the halftime score was just 6-3, but Aaron Rodgers found James Jones for an 83-yard touchdown in the third quarter. The Packers' second-half offense did more than enough to take the win at home.
The Packers improve to 2-2 while the Lions fall to 3-2.
