Lions vs. Packers score update: Lions lead 7-0 after first quarter

Matthew Stockman

The Lions defense came up with a big turnover as Green Bay was driving in the first quarter.

The Detroit Lions scored on a methodical opening drive to begin the game against their NFC North rival Green Bay Packers. It took the Lions 12 plays to go 80 yards as they took nearly eight minutes off the clock to do so. After getting the ball inside the Green Bay five yard line, the Lions drive stalled at fourth and one but Lions head coach Jim Schwartz elected to go for six and it played off with a Matthew Stafford scramble for a touchdown. The drive included a 22 yard rush for wide receiver Mike Thomas.

The Packers would drive into the Lions red zone on the ensuing possession but on a second down play, Aaron Rodgers was sacked by defensive end Lawrence Jackson who forced the ball loose. Lions linebacker Stephen Tuiloch hoped on the loose football at the Lions 21 yard line. By the end of the opening quarter, Detroit had driven the ball into Green Bay territory as they look to take a two score lead.
