Green Bay's Terdell Middleton (34) runs in the game winning touchdowns for 20 yards as the Packers(2-0) beat division rival Detroit Lions (1-1), 14-7!

August 14, 2020. Lambeau Field Green Bay Wisconsin. Anytime the Detroit Lions (1-0) meet up with the Green Bay Packers (1-0) in the Long Island Electric Football League, it means instant battle because it is a strong division rivalry, but as the teams in this league improve through the Draft, the new challenges have to be studied by each coach.  Green Bay Coach Eddie Vigs was a quarterback and college scholar-athlete himself, so he understands how important it is to be flexible in his game-plan, but no mercy when it comes to his opponents. "He beats you with silence," said Coach Billy O'C. He is the best coach in the league. Vigs was the alternative coach last year who beat Billy O'C's revived Miami Dolphins 44-41 with the Los Angeles Rams in OT in Super Bowl XV. 

On the other end of the spectrum the dynamic Detroit Lions are well coached by the "Freeport-Chucker" Johnny Lafromboise, who we call the "risk-taker" in the league as his teams become dangerous when they are ahead or behind in his savvy coaching. Last week the Chucker and his Detroit Lions exploded with superstar Dexter Bussy totaling a record 499-yards with five-touchdowns against the amazing, rising Chicago Bears! The next closest performances were Philadelphia's Harold Carmichael with 338-yards, and Denver's Terell Davis who had 370-yards against the Titans.

Slawson's Corner boldly predicted Vigs Packers will win in a close one, but the Chucker says, "hogwash." "How is anyone going to tell me that Vigs Packers will win this game? After we watched Carolina tear them apart in the playoffs 42-20, we figured out a game plan to stop this team on the road. Vigs isn't the only coach who can win a championship in this league. I am bringing a team that continues to perform, and we play well in our away games and our lucky blue and white's (Uniforms). Vigs better be ready for Bussy because when he hits numbers like last week against good teams, that is called momentum! The Packers won't stop our special teams. We are going to make a statement in this game that we won't be manhandled.  This is our year, just like in 2016, when we beat New England down to the ground and embarrassed them, and the Rams should watch their back too. It's my job to talk for my teams!" The agitated coach stepped-up his verbiage predicting that his Lions will win the division, and we are only in Week#2. This on-going competitive feud is one-way by the Chucker, but Coach Vigs said, "With the Lions and Bussy, you can't afford not to be prepared because he really is a great player and he's the heart-and-soul of the Lions. We have to get Sterling Sharpe and Jim Taylor more involved in the offense and score more points. The one thing we have learned is that it is fine to have a great defense, but it has to be balanced with stars on offense too. Our goal is to figure out their weakness and force the Chucker's mistakes to our advantage. It should be a great game!" 

Just as Coach Vigs promised, Green Bay's Sterling Sharpe returned the opening kick-off 38 yards. On their first possession Packers running back Terdell Middleton pressed the Detroit Lions defense, almost taunting them to stop him as he had gains of 22, 15, and 8 yards until quarterback Aaron Rogers connected on a 27-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline to Don Hudson, 7-0 Green Bay! The Packers wasted no time scoring with 5:52 left in the half. 

After a 52 yard kick return on their opening kick-off, Detroit Lions star Dexter Bussy exploding on first down for 29 yards for the first down. Green Bay's defense would make a "not today" statement, stuffing Bussy on his next two runs.  On third down, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford found All-Pro Calvin Johnson for a 25-yard touchdown to tie the score at 7-7, to end the first half.

Sterling Sharpe took the Packers next kick return 42-yards setting up Middleton with excellent field position for Green Bay. After the Lions stopped Middleton on the Packers drive, Coach Vigs decided to air it out with a great pass to Sharpe for an 18 yard pick-up for a first down! Just as Coach Vigs promised in the pre-game talk, Coach Vigs got Sharpe more involved as Sharpe took the ball to the Detroit 30-yard line with 6:49 left to go in the game.

Detroit Lions All_Pro tackle Lomas Brown, was all over the field today making his third stop of the game on Middleton, but the Pack just kept moving the ball forward on a big 8-yard catch from Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rogers to Jim Taylor for the first down with 1:38 left in the game as the Packers drove the ball to the Detroit 20-yard line with time running out, in another challenging defensive battle this week for Green Bay. Last week's win over Minnesota was a powerful display of the Packers tight defense. With 23 seconds left in the game Green Bay's Terdell Middleton ran it in from 20 yards out to put the Packers up for good in their 14-7 victory over the Detroit Lions.
 
The Packers game plan worked for Coach Vigs, to keep the ball away from Dexter Bussy, and it's exactly what they did. They held Bussy to a total 81 yards and shut down the Lions on offense. Coach Vigs said, "Well, now you know the game plan and my Packers are not going to back down to anybody this year. We beat one of the best team's in the LIEFL. This team will come to play you every week. There was no comment of course from the wounded Freeport-Chucker as he rushed out of the "War-Room" silent and the division momentum went to the Packers for today.  The Green Bay Packers head to New Orleans next week to face Kevin "Mac" Maloney's highly-competitive Saints (1-0), and Detroit will play the tough Arizona Cardinals (1-0) on the road.
