The Detroit Lions put a damper on the Packers playoff chances with a 7-3 victory at Ford Field Sunday. The Midwest was buried by a winter blizzard this weekend and the Packers buried themselves with mistakes. They had three turnovers which might have cost them 21 points, a fumble by Andrew Quarless on the opening series at the Detroit 35, a dropped pass by Greg Jennings that was picked off instead of going 73 yards for a touchdown, and DeAndre Levy's interception of Matt Flynn in the end zone as the Pack was driving for a 10-0 third quarter lead. Flynn was playing because Aaron Rodgers got knocked out of the game with a second concussion this season. The first in Washington did not prevent from returning the following week but now that he's had another, could jeopardize his availablity for the New Englad game Sunday night.
Phoenix women fall
After opening the season with 9 straight wins, all convincing, the Green Bay Phoenix women were knocked off by Marquette Sunday 63-60. The Golden Egles built a 22-7 lead in the first half and GB could not recover. Kayla Tetschlag and Julie Wojta each recorded double-doubles for the Phoenix Tetschlag had 17 points and 10 rebounds while Wojta added 16 points and 11 boards. GB (9-1) will host Evansville Saturday night.
Badgers look for rival sweep
The Green Bay men, coming off a 78-64 road loss to Buffalo Saturday, meet the Wisconsin Badgers tonight at the Kohl Center. GB is 4-6 on the season while the Badgers improved to 8-2 by virtue of their pair of wins against the other Division 1 programs in the last week, 61-40 over UW Milwaukee and on Saturday, 6964 over Marquette.
