NFL Regular Season Week 5 – The Detroit Lions Cheerleaders

It was big game week in Detroit with the division rival Green Bay Packers coming into town.  Division games are always important, particularly early in the season when things can go off the rails with a loss.  The thought was that a one legged Aaron Rodgers would be an easier path to victory, but even with a knee injury, Rodgers shredded the Lions defense to the tune of 442 passing yards and three TDs.  And things could have been worse if not for four missed field goals by Mason Crosby.  Fortunately for the Lions, they have a pretty good offense too.  Mathew Stafford passed for two TDs and LeGarrette Blount rushed for two TDs to hold off the Packers, 31 – 23.

In Detroit, it was the week to celebrate the NFL’s Crucial Catch initiative to fight against cancer.  In years past, the NFL was committed to highlighting breast cancer awareness in the month of October, but their efforts have been expanded to combat all forms of cancers.  In honor of this effort, the Detroit Lions Cheerleaders wore special pink colored uniforms.  Click here to view the Lions game day gallery.
