National Football League notebook: Packers' top three receivers sit out practice

The Packers enter the contest in second place in the NFC North at 2-1-1 with the Lions coming in at the bottom at 1-3. That falls on head coach Mike McCarthy.

Green Bay (2-2-1) could not overcome uncharacteristic mistakes by veteran kicker Mason Crosby and two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers, who lost two fumbles for just the third time in his 14-year career.

Everything went wrong. A Lions punt hit Kevin King, giving possession back to Detroit on the Packers' one-yard line. The Rodgers-orchestrated offense scored a pair of touchdowns and a trio of field goals for 22 points, while Allen was unable to get anything on the board for the Bills. They've put up good quarters of solid defense in every game, but have had their lapses as well.

This falls on Mike McCarthy. After the game, Crosby said that he'd never had a day like that before.

Aaron Rodgers (left) talked about frustration with the offense last week against the Bills, but stressed that there is no rift with the coaches. His opening week comeback against the Bears now looks less heroic and more necessary after seeing the Packers limp through the first quarter of the season. At home. In the season opener.

In 2010 the Packers started 3-3 and finished the year with the Lombardi Trophy. The teams both might be coming in a bit winded after having run the length of the field multiple times (Green Bay picked up 439 yards, Detroit 403).

Injuries played a part against the Lions. And they had both Cobb and Allison two weeks ago at Washington.

The Panthers have already ruled him out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, but Olsen said there is a chance he could play the following week.

It's hard to understand why the Packers don't do more to provide opportunities in the passing game for the running backs, especially as so many modern offenses in the National Football League lean on the position to create easy yards through the air week after week. The team accrued the bulk of their points in the first half (16) and coasted on those for the victory. "When you step in, there's an expectation you're going to make the plays.' So, we've got to keep improving in practice".

It was another instance of a tale of two halves for the Green Bay Packers. The weight of carrying the Packers has literally broken Rodgers shoulder a few times this decade, but a broken spirit won't heal as quickly, if at all.
