What should have been a shootout turned into a clash of defenses on Sunday, with both Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford finishing with lower-than-expected numbers, as the Green Bay Packers handily defeated the Detroit Lions, 22-9.
Despite Rodgers' modest numbers, his receivers had a huge day. James Jones and Jordy Nelson alone accounted for over 200 of Rodgers' 274 total passing yards, despite only making one trip to the end zone. Now, getting on the board was Mason Crosby's job on Sunday, as his 15 points accounted for over half the Packers' total 22.
Add to that a stout performance by Green Bay's defensive line, who kept Detroit under 100 total rushing yards and put pressure on Stafford throughout the game, and a few key players emerging as standouts in the win. Let's take a look at five of them now.
