Packers’ Matt LeFleur gets testy with reporter over ‘BS’ question after brutal loss: ‘We got our a– kicked’

Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LeFleur was blunt in his assessment of Thursday night’s brutal beat down by the Detroit Lions, but he got testy with the media when pressed further for an explanation during his postgame presser. 

“They manhandled us,” LaFleur said of the 34-20 loss.

The Lions defense held the Packers to just 27 total rushing yards, compared to Detroit’s 211 total rushing yards. LaFleur said the passing game was not much better, with Jordan Love throwing for 246 yards for just one touchdown and two interceptions. 

Thursday night’s win marked the Lions fourth straight victory over their NFC North rivals. Their 24-point lead over the Packers was the Lions’ highest-scoring first half against Green Bay in the series’ 188-game history.

“It is what it is. I don’t think anybody’s feeling sorry for us,” LaFleur said. “Everything wasn’t good enough. The plan wasn’t good enough. I mean, that was humiliating to be down 27-3 or whatever it was at half.”
