Crosby misses 5 kicks as Lions down Packers


Adams suffered a calf injury Wednesday and has not participated in workouts since. Allison remains in the concussion protocol, but McCarthy thinks (or perhaps hopes) that Allison will clear into time for the game. Allison has yet to practice this week and will be unable to do so until a doctor clears him for action.

So, who's the next wide receiver up with the potential to emerge as a target for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game? The game will be the first he has missed since 2016.

Adams, Cobb and Allison have combined for 64 catches for 768 yards and six scores this season.

Back in 2012, Crosby missed two of his three FG tries inside at Ford Field and was mired in a awful slump, missing 7-of-13 attempts in a six-game span. Only rookie receivers remained at work. The jump from college game plans to the more complex playbooks of the National Football League is a large one.

- After a stop on defense, officials rule Packers cornerback Kevin King touched Sam Martin's opening punt, which was subsequentially recovered by Jamal Agnew at the 1-yard line.

The 32-year-old Carr has started 164 consecutive games, the longest streak among active defensive players, and defensive coordinator Don Martindale said it will be 165 on Sunday.

"Mentally, as a defense, I think we stuck in there", Williams said. "We're still learning. We're still growing, but from that day to now, there's been a lot of progress made, a lot of plays have been made, a lot of trust has been earned". We held them to a field goal the one time and gave up a touchdown before the half in a two-minute drive.

Cobb said earlier in the week his hamstring had been "feeling better". "Those opportunities are going to come and it's all about just them being ready for them".

Okwara leaped, his right arm extended, and swatted the ball from Rodgers' grasp. "When you get in games, it's a different situation". It was the most receiving yards Adams had in a game aside from his 156-yard outing against Tennessee on November 13, 2016. He was expected to match up with Adams, but if the Pack is without their number one wideout, Detroit will gain a big advantage. Tight end Jimmy Graham is fourth on the team with 16 receptions and running back Ty Montgomery, who started his career as a receiver, is fifth with 11. Instead, they turned to Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Like the changing of the leaves, the Packers are nearly guaranteed to go through a stretch of the regular season where they give everyone a good reason to doubt whether or not the wheels are starting to come off.
