Packers Dominate Lions in Lopsided Victory
The Green Bay Packers sheerly outmatched the Detroit Lions on Monday night in Lambeau Field, proving how dominating the Packers can be. It was a mismatch that the Packers used to their advantage, coming out with a convincing 42-21 victory.

The Packers’ offensive explosion was not just attributed to Rodgers’ stellar play, as the rest of the offense played an important role as well. Spread out across the board, the receiving corps combined to total over 250 yards on the night. The Packers running game also had flashes of brilliance in the first quarter, with Green Bay easily moving the ball and scoring three touchdowns, the last one coming the form of a beautiful 54-yard circus touchdown grab from Graham.
