Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith and NFL Twitter reacted to the Green Bay Packers earning a huge Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night.
The Green Bay Packers started off their season on the wrong foot, as they were embarrassed by the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. After hearing the critics and detractors throughout the week, the Packers decided to use that energy to take it out on the rival Detroit Lions.
Sure enough, that is exactly what happened, as the Packers defeated the Lions 35-17 to earn their very first win of the 2021 season. With the offense waking up, that left many on social media buzzing, including Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith.

As you can see, there were plenty that loved what they saw from the Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, including ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. However, there was one party-pooper on Twitter on Monday night in the form of FOX Sports’ Skip Bayless. From diminishing the victory due to Detroit’s depleted secondary to bringing up what Rodgers did on that fateful drive in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rodgers completed 22-of-27 of his pass attempts for 255 yards and four touchdowns. Running back Aaron Jones was the star of the game, as he rushed for 67 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries, while catching all six of his targets from Rodgers for 48 yards and three touchdowns.
With their first win in the books, the Packers will now prepare for their Week 3 opponents in the San Francisco 49ers.
