Packers vs. Lions live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Monday Night Football’ game

Week 1 of the NFL season looked very different for Jared Goff and Aaron Rodgers, even though both started the season 0-1.

Rodgers turned in one of the worst performances of his career in recent memory as part of a 38-3 rout by the Saints where he had just 133 passing yards on roughly 53 percent of his passes and added two interceptions as well.

He admitted he didn’t play well in Week 1, and provided an interesting explanation for his two interception performance, but reminded people the last time he opened the season throwing two interceptions, he won his only Super Bowl.

Goff, meanwhile, turned in a serviceable performance in Week 1 against the 49ers and played well enough in the third and fourth quarter to keep the game interesting.

Trailing 38-10 with 7:54 left in the third, Goff and the Lions outscored the Lions 23-3 the rest of the way en route to a three touchdown, 300+ yard day for the Detroit signal caller, but it wasn’t enough for the Lions to come all the way back and win.

The Packers called up former Notre Dame wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown ahead of the game to get another weapon in the rotation for Aaron Rodgers while his brother, Amon-Ra, plays for the Lions.

The Lions will be without one of their top receivers in Tyrell Williams, who’s in the concussion protocol, and could be without one of their top running backs in D’Andre Swift, who’s currently listed as questionable with a groin injury.
