Week 3: at Detroit Lions

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Aaron Rodgers pulled the Packers' fat out of the fire last week after the team was down 3-21 midway through the second quarter. He bombed the Jets for 25/42 yielding 346 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions with four sacks taken for -28 yards. He relied on stalwarts Jordy Nelson (16 targets for 9/209/1 receiving) and Randall Cobb (six for 5/39/2), while throwing seven balls to Davante Adams (seven for 5/50/0) - Jarrett Boykin (three for 1/6/0) seems to be falling behind Adams on the depth chart as of Week 3 - Adams is becoming the 'third wheel' to Cobb and Nelson. It's all good for the Packers in this phase of the game entering the third week of regular season. The Lions' pass D ranks ninth in the NFL averaging 197.5 net passing yards per game this year, with two pass TDs and two interceptions generated through two games. The Panthers put up 22/34 for 251 net yards passing last week, with one TD and one interception thrown - Cam Newton was sacked four times for -30 yards. Though the Lions' defensive front gets after opponents, their secondary is suspect when the rushers don't meet at the quarterback. This looks like a neutral matchup for the visiting Packers.
