Detroit’s number one passer that game was Golden Tate. Tate caught eight passes for 63 yards. His longest reception was 13 yards.
I was honestly so surprised at this game. The entire first half of the game was just dominated by Detroit. They had this game in the bag! And then they became the Lions again. After this loss, their playoff chances are dim, and probably aren’t too likely. Green Bay is just grateful to be back on top, especially after Minnesota’s flop to Seattle.
