Detroit Lions (4-2) 31, Green Bay Packers (2-4) 24
Sunday October 8th 2000 (at Detroit)
(DETROIT) - For the second consecutive week, the Packers struggled early, rallied late and fell short in the end. This time, they were victimized on by the Lions at the Pontiac Silverdome. Five turnovers by Green Bay proved too costly, and Charlie Batch's 30-yard touchdown pass to Herman Moore 11 minutes into the third quarter was enough to eliminate a successful comeback by Brett Favre and the Packers. The Packers dominated many offensive statistics, including time of possession (34:36-to-25:24), total first downs (19-to-11) and total net yards (339-to-253), but Green Bay's 3 interceptions and 2 lost fumbles were the most critical statistics of the afternoon. Injuries continued to rip the Packers apart. RB Dorsey Levens, their second-most indispensable player, joined four other starters and four backups on the didn't-play list. Another six players, including starters Bill Schroeder and Mike Wahle, were hurt during the game.
