In like Flynn; the Pack is sacked

Posted: Updated:
Detroit, MI -

Former LSU quarterback Matt Flynn became the fourth starting quarterback of the season for the Packers on Thanksgiving Day.  In the previous 21 years Green Bay had only had three starting quarterbacks.  What started as a good opportunity for Flynn wound up a nightmare as the Lions battered him all day in Detroit.  Matt Flynn was sacked seven times, once by Ndamukong Suh for a safety.

 

Matthew Stafford made up for some mistakes with three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, to help the Detroit Lions score 37 straight points after an awful start to beat the Green Bay Packers 40-10 on Thursday.

The Lions (7-5) had lost their last two games, five consecutive against Green Bay and a franchise-record nine straight in their annual showcase on Thanksgiving.  The Packers (5-6-1) have a five-game winless streak for the first time since 2008, showing how valuable Aaron Rodgers is for the franchise. Rodgers has missed four-plus games since fracturing his left collarbone.
