The early Thanksgiving game started out slow in the first quarter. The second quarter started out promising with back to back field goals. Detroit had the ball but it was fumbled and intercepted by the Packers to bring the score to 10-3. This is unfortunately where the Packers would stay for the remainder of the game. Matt Stafford recovered from some early mistakes to throw 3 touchdown passes. The Lions dominated all three quarters and eventually won 40-10. The lions are now 7-5 and are the lead in the NFC North followed closely by the Bears who are at 6-5 awaiting Sundays game against the Vikings. The Packers fall to 5-6-1 with their 5th straight loss since Aaron Rodgers broke his collar bone. Thankfully for packers fans Rodgers was practicing this week and says that he should be playing in next weeks game against the Falcons.
On a different note, Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hannukah to everyone! Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend with your families and friends. Thanks for reading Sports With Specht each week!
