Packers Hope Young Receivers Are Ready for the Big Stage

Crosby missed a career-high four field goals in one game and missed an extra point to boot.

Crosby was all over the place in the game, missing from close range (on an extra point), medium range (41, 42 and 38 yards) and he even had one miss from long range (56 yards).

Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes and LeGarrette Blount ran for two scores, lifting the Lions to a 31-23 win over the Packers on Sunday.

"I look back and I'm thinking, in my childhood, in high school, this is definitely one of the worst ones", said Crosby, the first National Football League kicker to miss four field goals in a game since 2010. He connected on a field goal with 2 seconds left, but that wasn't of much consolation after his poor performance.

"You just never know. I'm bummed about that".

Adams (28 receptions, 285 yards, three touchdowns), Allison (19 catches, 289 yards, two touchdowns) and Cobb (17 catches, 194 yards, one touchdown) represent 62.1 per cent of the completions, 64.8 per cent of the receiving yards and 85.7 per cent of the passing touchdowns for Green Bay through the first four games. A questionable call on the Lions' first punt gave Detroit the ball back on the Packers 1-yard line, and multiple Aaron Rodgers turnovers put the defense into tough situations. "When you step in, there's an expectation you're going to make the plays.' So, we've got to keep improving in practice". "I think that's something we had to do over time".

"You have to be what you practice", McCarthy said. "So, disappointing obviously being on that side, how we've been hitting the ball for me, that just feels like one of those days because I feel extremely, extremely good this year with how I'm striking it".

Then with 1:06 to go in the first frame, Blount ran it in for his second TD and a 14-0 advantage at the initial break.

After the bad first half, Crosby had to wait for his next opportunity. Green Bay added 3 WRs in this year's draft - J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St.

The Lions pass defense now ranks second in the league in yards allowed per game.

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will be returning to practice Saturday while Randall Cobb has been ruled out for the team's Week 5 game against the Lions, coach Mike McCarthy announced.

Rookie running back Kerryon Johnson has 12 carries for 70 yards, but left in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Injuries are a part of the game.
