Love Shines as Packers Defeat NFC North-leading Lions with 29-22 Win, Career High 3 TD Passes

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Detroit Lions 29-22 on Thursday in a game they controlled from start to finish. Jordan Love led the way with a 53-yard pass to Christian Watson on the opening play and finished with three touchdowns. The Packers capitalized on Jared Goff’s three fumbles and Dan Campbell’s aggressive fourth-down decisions. Love threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Watson after the Lions failed a fake punt, extending the Packers’ lead to 29-14. Goff managed to pull the Lions within seven points with a late touchdown, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Packers’ lead. The Lions’ attempt at an onside kick was foiled by an illegal formation penalty, ending a disappointing game for them. Love had a stellar performance, completing 22 of 32 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns, while also making a career-long 37-yard run. Rashan Gary led the Packers’ defense with two forced fumbles, a recovery, and three sacks of Goff. Goff finished the game with 332 yards and two touchdowns. Both teams had key players inactive due to injuries. The Packers will face Kansas City next, while the Lions will take on New Orleans.
