NFL: Second flag on Lions' Flowers was error

The NFL acknowledged that a second hands-to-the-face call against Lions DE Trey Flowers on Monday night was an error. "The foul wasn't there," executive VP Troy Vincent said.

Matt LaFleur and his staff must be tougher graders than ESPN Stats & Info. LaFleur said they counted six dropped passes last night against the Lions. ESPN had three, which by that count would be the second-most drops by any team in Week 6. By ESPN's count, that doubled the Packers' drops for the season.

Matt LaFleur would not say what he thought of the penalties for illegal hands to the face on Trey Flowers while going against David Bakhtiari. "I'm getting into the officiating; I'll let you guys (in the media) handle that," he said.

Not only are Preston Smith (7 sacks) and Za'Darius Smith (6) the first Packers tandem to post 6-plus sacks in the first six games of a season, they combined for 2.5 sacks on third downs last night, giving them 6.5 sacks on third downs this season. Here are the snap counts on defense from Monday night's win over the Lions:

What Allen Lazard's game last night so impressive -- other than he had never caught a pass from Aaron Rodgers before prior to his 35-yard TD in the fourth quarter? Lazard had only 0.52 yards of separation on the play -- the fewest on a Rodgers TD over the last three seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info/NFL NextGen. Here are the snap counts on offense from Monday night's win over the Lions:

Rodgers lobbied in fourth for WR Lazard to play

Aaron Rodgers said he went to receivers coach Alvis Whitted in the fourth quarter and asked if Allen Lazard could come in. Four catches, 65 yards and a TD later, the Packers had a new breakout performer.

Aaron Rodgers said he sits next to Allen Lazard in the meeting room, and they've struck up a friendship. "I may have put in a good word for him in the fourth quarter to get him some reps." Rodgers said.

How did Allen Lazard, a virtual unknown, become the hero for the Packers? "I'm made for this sxxx," Lazard said with a smile.

Here's the skinny on a Packers' hero Allen Lazard: He had four catches for 65 yard and a TD, all in the fourth quarter. Before tonight, Lazard had never caught a pass from Aaron Rodgers in the regular season until his 35-yard TD. Lazard had one career catch entering the night, thrown by DeShone Kizer in 2018. Lazard played 19 snaps in the first five games this season.

Packers WR Geronimo Allison is still being evaluated for a concussion, but he will not return. He also has a chest injury.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers have three dropped passes tonight, matching their drop total from the first five games of the season, according to ESPN Stats & Info. And that doesn't include Geronimo Allison on the first series, which was not graded as a drop. The three drops were: Aaron Jones at the Lions 6-yard line, Jimmy Graham in the end zone, Darrius Shepherd at the Lions 1-yard line.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers last three games with three turnovers have all been against the Lions, including tonight. They lost the last two.

Preston Smith has four sacks on third down this season. Za'Darius Smith has three. That's 7 of the Smith duo's 13.5 sacks on third downs this season.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

The Packers have turned it over twice -- Aaron Jones' fumble and Darrius Shepherd's punt return -- and the defense has held the Lions to field goals both times. Can't ask for much more.
