Packers take 6-3 lead into halftime

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 6, 2013 – 1:23 pm

131006-lacy-q2-600The Lions finally got on the board on a 53-yard FG by David Akers with 15 seconds left in the half, cutting their deficit in half.

The Packers extended their lead to 6-0 early in the second quarter on a 52-yard FG by Mason Crosby. Green Bay was helped by a crucial fourth-down penalty on the Lions for defensive holding, which allowed the conversion after TE Jermichael Finley dropped a pass at the first-down marker. The Packers had decided to go for it on fourth-and-4 from the Detroit 40-yard line.

Two snaps later, TE Ryan Taylor was wide open down the middle seam, but Rodgers’ pass went right through his hands instead of going for a 34-yard TD.

Eddie Lacy ran the ball on five of the first six plays of the 12-play drive, gaining 20 yards and pushing his total for the game to 43 yards on the ground.

Lacy gained nine more rushing yards on Green Bay’s next drive, which featured two third-down passes to Jordy Nelson to move the chains, but the Packers stalled out near midfield and had to punt.

Starting from their own 11 on the final drive of the half, the Lions completed third-down passes of 22 yards to Ryan Broyles and 25 yards to Brandon Pettigrew to move into scoring range.

A holding call on Riley Reiff negated a third-down scramble by QB Matthew Stafford for a first down, leading to the 53-yard FG by Akers with 15 seconds left in the half.
