Before the season started, you probably wouldn’t have predicted that the Detroit Lions would bring a 3-1 record into Lambeau Field in week 5. You also probably wouldn’t have guessed that the Green Bay Packers would be 1-2 headed into this match up.
The Lions got their season off to the start they’d hoped for while the Packers are trying to right the ship today in a match up of NFC North rivals.
The Packers know that the Lions have weapons. They might not have lived up to their potential last year, but the Packers are familiar with their weapons and think the key to stopping them is trusting one another.
“They have a very explosive offense,” Packers safety Morgan Burnett said, via ESPN. “They’ve got a lot of weapons with Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush; they’ve got (Brandon) Pettigrew at tight end, you’ve got Matthew Stafford at quarterback. They’ve got weapons, so you’ve got to trust your defense, trust your technique. You can’t get out of line with guessing or anything, because they’re a good team.”
