Crosby jogged onto the field, but the Packers made a decision to go for it. Rodgers scrambled for the first down, setting up Green Bay's second touchdown.

The Lions' third scoring drive started at the Green Bay 22, after Romeo Okwara hit Rodgers from behind to force a fumble on the second-to-last play of the first quarter, and ended in a short Matt Prater field goal. You have to be able to play through injuries in games, play through injuries in practice, play through injuries that you're able to prepare for. Allison has yet to practice this week and will be unable to do so until a doctor clears him for action.

Rodgers connected with Davante Adams on a 12-yard throw for a third TD pass, but Crosby hit the left upright on the extra point to let the Lions keep an 11-point lead midway through the fourth quarter.

Golladay has had at least four receptions and 50 yards in every game thus far and is on pace for 86 receptions for 1370 yards and 10 touchdowns heading into the bye.

The Green and Gold presently have six active receivers on their roster. Brown. Valdes-Scantling has the only two catches from that group. He has 17 catches in three games, including nine for 142 yards and a score in the season opener. His only make was a meaningless 41-yarder with seven seconds remaining. The jump from college game plans to the more complex playbooks of the National Football League is a large one.


Aaron Rodgers (left) talked about frustration with the offense last week against the Bills, but stressed that there is no rift with the coaches. Kickoff was set for 1:00 pm Eastern time as the Lions looked to earn a victory in their first division game of this season.

The young receivers feel they are equal to the challenge.

"Mason and I have played together for a long time, and I strongly believe he's one of the greatest kickers of all time", Aaron Rodgers said. Obviously he's disappointed. I don't think he expected this.

-Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook did not practice because of a hamstring injury, and head coach Mike Zimmer expects to list Cook as questionable on Friday's injury report. But with Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) looking unlikely to suit up, the Packers could be forced to start all three of their rookie wideouts - Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'mon Moore and Equanimeous St. "But I told those guys before Week 1, 'You're all going to get an opportunity at some point".
