Thoughts after 3 quarters. Lions, Packers

 - Nick Fairley is showing the Lions didn't make a mistake by taking him in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The talent is obviously there. Not only is he capable of a bull rush move like the one that netted him a key sack of Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the third quarter, but he has quickness as well. And he won't be double-teamed that often because of the presence of fellow tackle Ndamukong Suh
- In or near the scoring zone, in man-to-man coverage, the Lions are infamous for turning their back on pass plays and forgetting about all the territory between the line of scrimmage and the end zone. It led to the game-winning touchdown pass last week by Andrew Luck of the Colts to receiver Donnie Avery. It led Rodgers' touchdown run tonight.
- All Joique Bell does is make plays. He made another one in the third quarter. No mistake there one-on-one against a linebacker.
- Jason Hanson missed a huge field goal attempt on Thanksgiving Day, but otherwise, he is having a great season. It's a huge edge the Lions have in this game. Mason Crosby of the Packers is awful.
