    Looking back at the Packers' win over the Detroit Lions
    Packers 22, Lions 9 Strategy: The Packers have built their offense around former league MVP Aaron Rodgers. They love putting him in the shotgun, using three-wide sets and keeping defenses on their heels with the no-huddle. They attack the whole field...
