On Thursday Night Football, Montgomery ran for three touchdowns, a career high, to lead the Detroit Lions to a 34-20 victory.

When asked about his first victory over the Packers, Montgomery told reporters, “It definitely felt great.” “You know I haven’t been able to do that, but to come here with the group of guys that I’m able to play with, it’s a blessing.”

 

Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season: Lessons from the Lions’ victory against the Packers on Thursday night: LT David Bakhtiari (knee) has been placed on injured reserve; it is unknown when he will be back.
With a road victory over the Packers at Lambeau Field, the Lions alter the NFC North storyline.

With 32 carries on Thursday, Montgomery matched a career best and now has the most of any player in the NFL this season. He was the epitome of a workhorse.

 

In the first, second, and fourth quarters, he scored on runs of three, two, and one yard, respectively. On the aforementioned 32 carries, he gained 121 yards in total, or an average of 3.8 yards per carry. The latter figure is hardly cause for celebration, but he was able to exert pressure on the Packers and lead Detroit to a 27-0 lead in the first half. With six minutes remaining, he put an end to any thoughts of a comeback. Montgomery wrecked havoc on the Packers with 113 yards after contact, which is a career high for one game, according to Next Gen Stats.

Jared Goff, the quarterback for the Lions, stated, “He does get better throughout the game.” “The more hits he takes, the better he gets. The more equipped he is to perceive the gaps and the situation, and yes, he did improve. There were two kinds of runs, I believe. One was when the lane was open and he was just doing his thing, running right past them. Then, he sort of manufactured something out of nothing during runs where not much was present. That’s when you know your man is partially in the zone. He did what he did tonight despite your attempts to keep feeding him.”

Given that Montgomery had missed Week 3 due to a thigh injury and was doubtful for Thursday’s game, his impact and workload were all the more remarkable.

Still, offensive coordinator Ben Johnson and head coach Dan Campbell fed Montgomery frequently. Fans will probably continue to demand more from first-round pick Jimmyr Gibbs, who averaged five yards on his eight attempts for 40 yards, even though he didn’t find any huge chunk gains. Montgomery was supposed to pound the Packers, and for sixty minutes, he did just that.

Campbell remarked, “You could just see the look in his eyes.” “He appeared prepared to leave.” He was prepared to leave. His physique was obviously prepared for action. Consequently, we were going to carry him as far as his body would allow us to take him, and it was undoubtedly ready to go.”

Montgomery is unfamiliar not just with where he put the Lions on Thursday night, at the top of the NFC North, but also with beating the Packers. Montgomery was a member of the Bears from 2019 to 2022, and his team never placed higher than second throughout that period.

If the Lions are to stay in first place throughout the season, he will undoubtedly be a key player.

For Montgomery, Thursday night’s outcome was particularly noteworthy. He led the way as Detroit defeated Green Bay for the fourth time in a row, ending years of losing to the Packers.

Montgomery remarked, “It felt really different coming in.” “Like I mentioned, I’m blessed with the guys I hang out with. It means a lot to me to come out here and receive the dub with these guys. My youngster could hear that I defeated the Packers. I’m thrilled to say that, then. I’m ecstatic to be joining this group.”
