Thoughts after 3 quarters, Packers, Lions

- Calvin Johnson's brilliance is sometimes difficult to comprehend. The 25-yard pass he caught from Matthew Stafford made Packers' safety Morgan Burnett look silly. Burnett is a good player, but that play was an example why Johnson is the best non-quarterback in the NFL. Defenses stack the deck against him. He still succeeds.
- It is difficult to not look at the fourth quarter of this football game and not see the Lions' season the line. At 5-5, they'd still have a fighting chance. At 4-6, the situation goes from percarious to dire.
- When Nick Fairley made a tackle for loss to end the quarter, fans started chanting "Suh." While Suh is playing well today, Fairley is playing better. This is what this town envisioned when the Lions selected Fairley 13th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft.

And the streak is alive! Packers win their 5th straight defeating Detroit 24-20. Green Bay is 21-4 against the Lions since 2000.
