Detroit Takes On The Pack At Lambeau

(DETROIT, MI) – The Detroit Lions travel north this weekend to take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday with a kick-off slated for 1:00 pm at Lambeau Field. The Lions will look to continue their momentum after a 40-32 home victory over the Chicago Bears, while the Packers will attempt to gain some ground in the NFC North after their bye in Week 3.

In Sunday’s win, QB Matthew Stafford completed 23 passes and became the first player in NFL history to record 1,200 completions in a player’s first 50 games. Sunday’s game marked Stafford’s 49th career game. Now with 1,214 career completions, Stafford is the first player in franchise history to record 1,200 career completions.

Running Back Reggie Bush rushed for 139 yards on 18 attempts (7.7 avg.) and scored on a 37-yard touchdown in the Lions’ win Sunday. It was Bush’s first 100-yard rushing game since joining the Lions and the eighth of his career. Bush’s 139-yard rushing performance was the third-highest of his career and most since he had 172 yards against Oakland September 16, 2012.

Sunday’s game at Green Bay will air on FOX (locally on WJBK-TV FOX 2) with Kenny Albert handling play-by-play, Daryl Johnston adding colour commentary and Tony Siragusa reporting from the side-line. The game will also air live on the Lions Radio Network (WXYT 97.1 FM) with announcer Dan Miller handling play-by-play, Jim Brandstatter adding colour commentary and Tony Ortiz reporting from the side-line.
