The Green Bay Packers extended their 21-game home winning streak against the Detroit Lions in Week 5 by virtue of a 22-9 victory, but the alleged actions of Lions center Dominic Raiola have taken center stage in the game's aftermath.   

Tom Melton of TomMeltonScouting.com was told by numerous members of the University of Wisconsin marching band that Raiola verbally assaulted them prior to the game and following their halftime performance, ridiculing them for their weight.

Raiola has since apologized for the comments.
