The Detroit Lions are having an awful season, but they’ll always have their win over the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau Field, resulting in memes celebrating the rare occasion.
How rare? The Lions haven’t won there since 1991. Barry Sanders was still playing. Brett Favre wasn’t even in Green Bay. Yes, it’s been a long time.
The flipside to this isn’t the Lions improving to 2-7 and shocking the NFL world with their win. It’s the Packers falling to 6-3, losing a third game in a row and suddenly seeing the Minnesota Vikings claim top spot in the division and the Bears not too far away.
Aaron Rodgers suddenly looking mundane for three quarters and maybe more is another thing to worry about. Suddenly he’s not the best quarterback in the NFL. Suddenly he’s ordinary, and the Packers can’t win with him being far from special.
