Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers: Takeaways from Detroit's 22-9 Loss

The Detroit Lions fell to the Green Bay Packers by a score of 22-9 at Lambeau Field. 

Playing without Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson, the Lions' offense struggled to accomplish much of anything against a patient, disciplined Green Bay defense. 

The loss leaves the Lions at 3-2 but still tied atop the NFC North with the Chicago Bears, who lost at home to the New Orleans Saints. Next Sunday Detroit treks across Lake Erie to face the hot Cleveland Browns. Cleveland has won three in a row after dropping the first two games. 

The Packers improve to 2-2, having played one less game because of their bye in Week 4. Green Bay hits the road to Baltimore for a date with the Ravens next Sunday. 

Here are my initial takeaways from the loss.
