WATCH: Lions’ Matthew Stafford Completes 66-yard Flea Flicker on First Play vs. Packers
What’s better than a flea-flicker? A flea-flicker on the first play of the game of course.
On the game’s very first play…

The Lions perfectly executed their flea-flicker. Running back Kerryon Johnson attacked the line off of the handoff, kicked it back to Stafford, from there, all Stafford had to do was air it out to a wide-open Golladay. Not to mention, the line gave protection for the deep-shot to develop.
Unfortunately for Detroit, the flea-flicker did not result in a touchdown. After three plays for a total of eight yards, the Lions opted to let Matt Prater kick a 26-yard field goal — which he made. Nonetheless, the play was a tone-setter; it let the Packers know the Lions are going to punch them in their mouth, no matter if they are at Lambeau Field.
