Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers: Full Lions Report Card

The Detroit Lions fell at Green Bay to the Packers by a score of 22-9. This marks the 23rd straight road loss to Green Bay, which includes one playoff loss. 

The 22 straight road losses represents the longest streak in NFL history between two franchises. 

This was a tough game to watch for Lions fans. The surprising absence of Calvin Johnson weighed heavily upon the game far beyond Detroit just missing its top receiver. 

The grades here reflect how the performances of the players rate in comparison to their play so far this year. I also factor in my expectations based upon the matchup and how well they executed their assigned tasks. 

It's important to note the Lions are still 3-2 and remain tied for first place in the NFC North. The Chicago Bears lost to New Orleans to also fall to 3-2, while the Packers sit a half-game back at 2-2 thanks to their early bye week. 

It's always harder to grade after a tough loss, but there were some real positives from this game. The Lions face the Browns next Sunday in Cleveland, and many of the good things from this game can positively translate into that contest as well. 

Unfortunately, the negatives also pertain. There is a lot of work to do in Allen Park this week if the Lions hope to remain in first place and knock off the surging Browns.
