286: Yards of offense by the Lions. Without wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), the Lions offense never found a groove in Sunday’s loss to the Packers. The Lions gained just 286 yards, which was their worst output since Week 14 in 2011 — they actually beat the Vikings in that game. Matthew Stafford had 262 yards passing and the Lions gained just 64 yards rushing, but the team lost 40 yards on sacks. The Lions only had three points until Kris Durham caught a touchdown pass with 2:06 remaining in the fourth quarter.
5: Sacks allowed by the Lions. Since the start of the season, the Lions’ reconfigured offensive line has been a bright spot, allowing just three sacks in the first four games. But Sunday, the Lions struggled with Green Bay’s pass rush and allowed five sacks, including two by linebacker Nick Perry. Left tackle Riley Reiff allowed two of the sacks, but the unit as a whole will take the blame.
69: Yards from scrimmage for Reggie Bush. Bush was fantastic in his first two full games for the Lions, gaining 191 yards from scrimmage in Week 1 and 173 in Week 4, both victories. Without Johnson on the outside, though, the Packers focused on stopping Bush. He had 13 carries for just 44 yards, helped largely by one 20-yard gain, and four receptions for 25 yards.
0: Turnovers forced by the Lions. The Lions were 3-0 this season when winning the turnover battle, but neither team had a turnover Sunday. While that may be a bright spot for the Lions offense, it was a big problem for the defense. Turnovers create momentum, and in a game in which the offense was struggling, the Lions defense needed to make some game-changing plays. The Lions forced two fumbles, but couldn’t recover either.
5.5: Yards per carry by the Packers. Green Bay had a top-10 rushing attack coming into Sunday’s game, and 180 yards on the ground will only help the Packers in the rankings. The Lions gave up their third run of 50-plus yards this season when Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb torched them for a 67-yard gain in the third quarter. The run set up the Packers’ third field goal, and on their next drive, they put the game out of reach with a touchdown. Rookie Eddie Lacy also had a nice day with 99 yards on 23 carries.
