What happened at Lambeau, stays at Lambeau
Mike O’Hara — DetroitLions.com
"What happened at Lambeau Field on a day that defined how the Lions’ regular season ended stays at Lambeau Field.No, this isn’t a line from a movie sequel or a funny takeoff about a bunch of guys who ran into trouble on vacation.The Lions had to deal with the reality of the NFL, and what lies ahead of them, immediately in the aftermath of their 30-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday."
With the First Pick
Ground game sets tone as Lacy runs past Lions
Ryan Wood — Green Bay Press Gazette
"The game film churned their stomachs all week. A whiffed block here. An unfinished assignment there.Over and over, the Green Bay Packers’ offensive line was sickened by its mistakes.This was the last time Green Bay met the Detroit Lions. Back in September, a putrid, vanilla offense stumbled at Ford Field. Collectively, the offensive line was determined to make Sunday’s rematch different."
Lions Come Back to Earth in Disappointing Loss to Packers
Jeff Risdon — Bleacher Report
"The Lions would be wise to take lessons from how Green Bay handled itself in achieving the victory. The Packers made fewer mistakes and did a better job preparing for the opponent. The signs were present early on. Green Bay came out pounding the pigskin offensively with smartly designed run plays for powerful back Eddie Lacy."
Lame-at-Lambeau Lions better snap to for playoffs
Bob Wojnowski – The Detroit News
"The Lions can blame it all sorts of things, from football fate to Rodgers’ remarkable resilience, but they’d better add this: Their own sloppiness, from penalties to punt returns to untimely gaffes. The Lions are going to the playoffs with an 11-5 record and that’s certainly worth extolling, but they’re going as a team that hasn’t proven it can play with the best."
