Week 3: vs Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Matthew Stafford regressed during Week 2, throwing 27/48 for 291 yards passing (a respectable total), but only managing one TD thrown vs. one interception, and he was sacked four times for -38 yards. Calvin Johnson (13 for 6/83/0), Joique Bell (11 for 6/61/0) and Golden Tate (eight for 5/57/0) were his main targets last week, with fullback Jed Collins (2/3/1 receiving) the recipient of the lone TD that Detroit scored last week. The Lions didn't do well when faced with a top-shelf defense such as Carolina's. This week, the Lions face a fairly stout pass D when Green Bay rolls into Detroit - the Packers are sixth in the NFL this year averaging 178.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with three passing scores given up vs. one interception generated so far. Geno Smith and Mike Vick were held to 16/32 for 166 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown last week, while Russell Wilson had an easy time against the Pack on opening day - he was sacked once for zero yards lost, and didn't have an interception on the way to 19/28 for 191 yards, with two TDs thrown. The Packers haven't allowed a ton of passing yards yet this year, but they haven't pressured opposing passers much, either. Stafford and company have to face the thunderous Green Bay home field advantage this week, so we consider this a neutral matchup on balance.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

With three functional tight ends rotating in and out of the game, Pettigrew saw a single target and was primarily a blocking option against the Giants. Eric Ebron was used more often down the seam on deeper routes and Joseph Fauria lining up as a split out receiver as well. Pettigrew, while the snap count was moderate, had minimal role in the passing offense this week.

2014 Week 2 vs CAR (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Pettigrew dropped an outlet pass late in the fourth quarter of Detroit's loss at Carolina, with open field in front of him, in his lone passing game involvement this week.
