Lions take 7-0 lead over Packers after one

Posted Nov 6, 2017

Green Bay has FG blocked on opening drive



GREEN BAY – It looked as though the Packers were going to score first, but the Lions did instead and took a 7-0 lead after one quarter on Monday night at Lambeau Field.

The Packers won the toss and elected to receive. QB Brett Hundley completed his first four passes and also picked up a first down with a sneak. But the drive bogged down on a first-down sack by LB Tahir Whitehead at the Detroit 25, and K Mason Crosby had a 38-yard field goal try blocked by DT A’Shawn Robinson, as the snap from new long snapper Derek Hart was low.

The Lions appeared to be stopped on a three-and-out on their first drive, but a third-down personal foul on Packers DT Mike Daniels for a head butt kept Detroit’s drive and the Lions capitalized. A 15-yard pass to WR Golden Tate and an 11-yard run by RB Ameer Abdullah preceded a 25-yard TD pass from QB Matthew Stafford to WR Marvin Jones, who beat CB Davon House down the sideline. The PAT made it 7-0 Lions with 1:45 left in the quarter.

The Packers went three-and-out on their next drive, losing yardage on first and second down before Hundley scrambled on third down, coming up a few yards shy as the quarter expired.
