Packers go to 11-0 for first time in franchise history

Aaron Rodgers was super again today in Detroit.

Aaron Rodgers’ big second half, a strong defensive effort with two huge interceptions in the final 30 minutes, and a “biggest turkey of the day” performance for a boy named Suh led the Green Bay Packers to a 27-8 Thanksgiving Day win over the always tough Detroit Lions.

Playing again with a bend, don’t break attitude, the Packers defense came up with big plays, while Rodgers hit James Jones for a Lion back-breaking 65-yard touchdown pass in the second half.
And while the Packers move to 11-0, I make my way to the dinner table, some delicious food and will give thanks for all that is right in the world along with my family.

Oh, and BTW, I think Evan Dietrich-Smith, who came in for Josh Sitton early in the game and played Suh quite well before “the stomp,” should have been awarded the “Galloping Gobbler.”

Sorry Aaron!

This boy named Suh was the “turkey of the day” … And like all turkeys today, he also lost his head
