The Packers swept their two regular-season meetings with the Lions last year despite never leading either game until Mason Crosby made a game-winning field goal as time expired. They meet again Sunday in Green Bay's home opener.

 

The Lions are trying to bounce back after blowing a 17-point, fourth-quarter lead in a 27-23 loss to Chicago last week.

 

That marked Detroit's 10th consecutive defeat, a skid that began last November.

 

Green Bay went 9-1 last year in games decided by eight points or fewer before opening this season with a 43-34 victory at Minnesota.

 

Aaron Rodgers threw for 364 yards and four touchdowns without an interception against the Vikings. Davante Adams caught 14 passes to tie Don Hutson's 78-year-old franchise single-game record.

 

The Packers lost starting right guard Lane Taylor to a season-ending knee injury against Minnesota.

 

Right tackle Billy Turner sat out the Vikings game with a knee problem, and his status for Sunday's game is uncertain.
