How Marcedes Lewis Has Performed Against NFC North Teams
New Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis is entering his 13th year in the NFL, which means his career actually dates back to before Aaron Rodgers took over for Brett Favre in Green Bay.
As a result, Lewis has had more than a few chances to line up against the Packers the teams play the most often—as well as the Packers themselves.
Here’s how Lewis has done against the NFC North.
Green Bay Packers - 6 catches, 76 yards
Lewis has played three games against his new employer dating back to 2008, which also happened to be his only win in three tries against the Packers. He had two catches for 7 yards in a 20-16 win that featured David Garrard fairly handily outpassing Aaron Rodgers.
Lewis increased his output to 21 yards on two catches in a 2012 meeting. The Packers won 24-15 that October day.
Finally, Lewis last faced the Packers in Week 1 of the 2016 season, when his 2 catch, 48 yard effort featured this catch and run to set up a T.J. Yeldon touchdown.
Detroit Lions - 10 catches, 121 yards
Lewis fared much better statistically in three games against the Detroit Lions, winning one of those three games. His most recent game was a lackluster two catch, 16 yard effort in 2016, but in 2012 and 2008 he caught four passes each day for 41 and 64 yards, respectively.
Chicago Bears - 9 catches, 67 yards
Staying consistent, Lewis has only participated in one win in three tries against the Chicago Bears while also putting out his worst statistical performance against an NFC North team: a 0 catch effort in 2016. He also had five catches for 24 yards in 2012 and four catches for 43 yards in 2008.
Minnesota Vikings - 9 catches, 93 yards, 1 TD
Injured for the 2016 matchup with Minnesota, Lewis was solid in both of Jacksonville’s other games against the Vikings. He caught four passes for 41 yards in 2008, then collected five catches for 52 yards and the touchdown below in 2012.
