Green Bay Packers Recap
Win The Turnover Margin
The Lions started last week’s match up with the Packers with turnovers on three of the first four possessions, eventually finishing with a total of four for the game compared to Green Bays three. Turnovers are becoming a weekly issue for the Lions, so much so that it has become more of a topic than the Lions secondary, which played surprisingly well against Green Bay.

Finding an identity isn’t something that happens overnight. It’s that is establish over time. It may be too soon to figure out if the Lions have an identity, but they certainly have a blue print. When the Lions’ defensive line is creating havoc in the backfield and stopping the run, the entire defense plays better. If the defensive line continues to play this way the Lions could be really scary.
