It appears as if people enjoyed the Green Bay Packers losing to the Detroit Lions 34-20 on Thursday night, with the whole NFL world watching. Detroit is a first-place team in the NFC North division with a 3-1 record, and Green Bay sits in second place in the division with a 2-2 record. This is the fourth consecutive time the Lions have beaten the Packers.
The only lead Green Bay had in this football game was 3-0 in the first quarter, and then it just avalanched for them right after that moment. NFL.com’s Eric Edholm wrote about the Detroit Lions:
“The Lions are 3-1 following Thursday’s victory over the Packers at Lambeau Field. That’s now four straight wins for Detroit head to head against the team that has dominated the division for decades, while the Lions have often have been looking up from the bottom. Who are these guys? The new NFC North favorites. That’s now two signature road victories–and not just anywhere, at Arrowhead and Lambeau in prime time–through four games. And it was the way it went down. The Lions dominated the first half, leading 27-3, and outgaining the Packers 284-21. That was the third-biggest halftime deficit the Packers have ever faced at Lambeau, tied with the Michael Vick playoff game of yore. The Lions’ win wasn’t quite as seismic as that night, but it is a sign that this team is here to stay.”
A lot of people picked the Lions to win the NFC North division this season, and it hasn’t happened for a few decades (1990s). Detroit appears to be the best team in this division by a mile. It feels like their division to lose this season after beating the Green Bay Packers.

Last time the Detroit Lions won their division was 1993, when it was the NFC Central. They never have won the NFC North. https://t.co/2rB1F9xJgY
