Thanksgiving Showdown: Jordan Love Steers Packers to Victory Over Lions in NFL Showdown
Jordan Love made a successful deep pass on his first snap, setting the tone for the Green Bay Packers, who took advantage of the Detroit Lions defense. Love threw a 53-yard pass to Christian Watson at the start of the game and wrapped up with three touchdowns, leading Green Bay to victory over the NFC North-leading Lions. The Packers remained in control of a game they never trailed, capitalizing on Jared Goff’s career-high three fumbles and Dan Campbell’s aggressive fourth-down plays. Although Goff helped Detroit pull within seven points in the final minutes, the Lions were not able to overcome their bad start. Rashan Gary led the Packers’ defense with dominant performance on the same field where he sustained a knee injury last season. Goff threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns, but his three fumbles cost the Lions the game. The Lions have now lost seven straight games on Thanksgiving.
