NFL: The Detroit Lions took the lead in the NFC North with a 34-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers

Running back David Montgomery made his return from a thigh injury to lead the Detroit Lions to a 34-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers and take sole possession of first place in the NFC North. Montgomery scored three touchdowns in the game.

Montgomery, who is now 26 years old, was unable to play for Detroit in their victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but he was able to lead his team to a 27-3 halftime lead in Wisconsin.

The Packers are currently in second place with a record of 2-2, while the Lions lead the division with a record of 3-1.

For the Detroit Lions, Jared Goff was responsible for one touchdown and one interception.

“It feels good,” said Goff, who completed 19 of 28 passes. “It feels good,” Goff said. “It’s still early, but to come on the road, against a good team, in a hostile environment, that’s been good for a long time,” the coach said. “It’s still early.”

The quarterback for the Lions continued by saying, “It’s always tough getting these [wins].” And I think tonight was our best performance.”

Green Bay hasn’t beaten Detroit in any of their last four games, and even though they overcame a 17-point hole to win against New Orleans last weekend, they couldn’t do it again on Thursday against Detroit.

This year at Green Bay, quarterback Jordan Love is taking over for four-time reigning Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers. During the second half of the game, Love threw for a touchdown and converted another one for his team in an effort to rally their support.

Love finished the game with a completion percentage of 23 for 36, but Detroit CB Jerry Jacobs picked off two of the 24-year-old’s throws during the contest.
