There weren't many things for the Green Bay Packers to be thankful for in their horrid loss to the Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day. Despite holding a 10-3 lead early in the second quarter, the Lions went on to score the next 37 points in the game to win by a score of 40-10.
This was easily one of the worst losses the Packers have suffered in recent history. Nothing went right, and the Lions dominated every aspect of the game on both sides of the ball.
It was an embarrassing effort from Green Bay in a game that it simply couldn't afford to lose. The Packers now sit at 5-6-1 on the season and will have an extremely difficult time making the playoffs.
Let's have a look at some takeaways from Green Bay's 40-10 loss to Detroit.
