Green Bay Packers: 5 players in the spotlight vs the Detroit Lions

Cobb did not play in Green Bay's win over the Bills because of a hamstring injury while Adams has been dealing with a calf issue. "It's magnificent to see a guy like that who's one of the best in the league to fight through that injury and not having to be able to practice all week and to go out and play like he did, that's unbelievable to see".

"You know we have to play better because last week was unacceptable", quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. Valdes-Scantling is the only rookie wideout to make a catch during a regular season game. If you have solid options on your bench, I'd prefer to go there, but Valdes-Scantling is a fine flex streaming option this week.

Davante Adams understood his importance to the Packers' offense with Randall Cobb nursing a hamstring injury and Geronimo Allison in the concussion protocol.

"This is how the week goes sometimes", McCarthy said. "That's big. the end had a big play to get us three more (points)". Detroit's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Green Bay defensive front that amassed seven sacks against Buffalo, so we'll see if they are up to the task. With their pedigrees, McCarthy would feel comfortable playing any of the three without any practice time. "I don't think guys ever got down and thought we were in big, big trouble at that time". "It's a long season and we're on Game 5, but at the same time, it's a short season, and we're on Game 5. I'm going to evaluate it and chalk it up to an anomaly in life". "So, it's trying to be smart on both sides of it, which I struggle with because I play through emotion".

How the Ravens will align their defense and work their substitution pattern to allow Carr to keep his streak going while still making use of Smith remains unknown. "I think we've grown a lot", Valdes-Scantling said.

"I look back and I'm thinking, in my childhood, in high school, this is definitely one of the worst ones", said Crosby, the first National Football League kicker to miss four field goals in a game since 2010.

Given the outlook at receiver, Rodgers might have to direct the passing game elsewhere. He had limited participation last week but full this week. A fifth-round pick past year, he spent all of his rookie season on the practice squad. Detroit recovered the onside kick to seal the win, preventing Packers' Aaron Rodgers from getting another chance at a game-winning Hail Mary in Detroit.
