A loss to Green Bay is always tough to take. At least the season will continue. Seattle is beatable.

Definitely happy I didn't drop the coin for the last minute flight to catch the game live.

Heh. I would've stayed in SE Michigan (extend my holiday vacation), if I could've nabbed reasonably priced tickets. I couldn't even get Wings tickets on a Tuesday night while I was there......


I agree.....Zenner & Riddick would be a good 1 - 2 punch.


I'm not gonna take anything away from Rodgers and his Pack because they won, they played better, and they deserved the division crown.


But.....the Lions lost that game.


Four key plays:


1. Tate's dropped pass along the sideline (Stafford overthrew but it was catchable), would've been a TD.


2. Zenner's missed opportunity when Stafford overthrew on a screen. Most likely would've been a TD the way Zach was playing.


3. Prater's missed field goal early on.


4. 12 men on the field penalty against the Lions which essentially ended up with Rodgers throwing his 4th TD pass of the game.


That's a 24 point swing, folks.

LOL..why does EVERY losing teams fan base think their team lost the game and the other team didnt win it. Apparently the Giants weren't involved yesterday in Washington's failure as it was all about the Skins not showing up.

I was thinking the same thing...
5. If Clay Matthews doesn't drop the pick six this game would have been a blow out.

With that said I can see the Lions pulling off an upset against Seattle and will be rooting for them.

Interesting but Packers had missed opportunities, too! A huge one was when Clay had a sure INT go right through his hands. There were quite a few miscues because players were covering for others, playing out of position. Lions did not capitalize on Packers having a mash unit out there.

Stats, refs, shoulda, woulda, coulda plays, things can be spun any way you want these days. After the half Packers were on a mission, more intense than the Lions, reminded of the Lions playing the Cowboys, house on fire 1st half, not so much in the second.

I found tickets on StubHub in the 300 level for $150-160. Considering it was the biggest Lions game to date at Ford Field I was willing to go that high. The airfare, however, was a different story. Flights on Soutwest were at least $150 higher from when I flew out on 12/9. Booked earlier, though.

Surprised you couldn't find a Wings ticket for a Tuesday night game. As the end of an era at The Joe inches closer and closer I suppose there's a demand. When I was searching tickets back in September tickets for the final game in the upper bowl were $500 each.

I was able to pull a Lions/Red Wings double header on 12/11. I got to watch the Lions beat the Bears and "enjoy" the snow that fell all day long on the walk to The Joe where I watched a miserable Wings team drop 2 pts to Philly after OT. Still enjoyed my pilgrimage to The Joe.

Whatever happens against Seattle, I'm looking forward to next season and hope to catch another game at Ford Field or on the road.

You're like my father-in-law during packer games. Now get back inside and watch your Lions. It's cold out and lions can win.

Another offensive facemask on a scoring drive that wasn't called. This b.s. never ends.

These refs are just horrible. How do you miss the block on the back by Russ? Terrible officiating all against Detroit
