"It was a big surprise to me because I didn't even know that I had that many catches," said Driver, who now has 46 for the year. "I knew the ball was coming my way, but a guy like me, I don't count catches or anything like that."
Six of Driver's catches went for first downs as he continued to contribute in various ways, like he has all season. He broke an Eric Davis tackle to spring for a 38-yard gain on third-and-17 in the first half and made a diving catch off a deflected pass for an 18-yard gain two series later. He also made a key block on a 46-yard reception by Terry Glenn, just before halftime, to help set up a touchdown.
"I think that was probably the best game I had all season," said Driver, "with no drops, showing my ‘physicalness' by breaking tackles, and making every catch count."
Driver's performance against the Lions is tied for fourth best all-time in team annals. Only Don Hutson, Ken Payne, and Vince Workman have caught more passes in a single game for the Packers. Hutson's 14 against the New York Giants in 1942 is the best.
