Aaron Rodgers' Packers continue free fall after loss to Lions

Aaron Rodgers threw three interceptions and the Detroit Lions stopped the Green Bay Packers on the final drive of the game to pull off one of the biggest upsets of the NFL season so far.

Green Bay's problems continue to pile up

After an offseason that saw Rodgers constantly in the headlines, the Packers look like a shadow of their former selves with three wins and six losses to their name.

Their hopes of making the playoffs are dwindling, as they are miles behind the division leading Minnesota Vikings (7-1).

The NFC North is one of the worst in the NFL, as three teams currently have losing records, with just the Vikings standing as possible NFC championship contenders at this time.

Green Bay and a poor running game

The Packers have a strong passing attack thanks to Rodgers, but when it comes to balancing the offense with the ground game, they have had problems all season.

It didn't help that they encountered a defensive wall in Detroit.

The worst news for the Packers is that their best runner was Rodgers, who gained 40 yards on four carries, while AJ Dillon ran the ball 11 times for just 34 yards.

The always reliable Aaron Jones had nine carries for 25 yards and Kylin Hill had one carry for seven yards.

Detroit Lions rise to the occasion

The Lions entered Sunday allowing 32.1 points per game, by far the worst in the NFL.

The fewest points they had allowed in a game before Sunday was 24 points.

The Packers managed just nine points, and it's one of the reasons they've now lost five straight games with Rodgers as QB for the first time since 2008.
