Packers' defense takes step forward, but concerns remain

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers know what they have on offense with reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers leading a star-studded group that includes All-Pro receiver Davante Adams and Pro Bowl running back Aaron Jones.

Defense remains much more of a question.

After giving up 55 points in the first six quarters of the season, Green Bay's defense showed signs of life on Monday night in a 35-17 victory over the Detroit Lions. The Packers forced two turnovers and held the Lions scoreless during a dominant second-half performance.
