Detroit (4-9) still hasn't defeated the Packers in the state of Wisconsin since December of 1991. Despite that fact, the Lions controlled the action throughout much of the first half, taking a 14-0 lead.
After a Mason Crosby field goal made it 14-3, the game turned on one play in the second quarter. Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford lost the football as he was trying to throw a pass. The fumble was recovered by Packers rookie defensive lineman Mike Daniels, who returned it for a touchdown, making it a 14-10 game at halftime.
Green Bay (9-4) took the lead in the third quarter on a 27 yard touchdown run by Aaron Rodgers, the longest of his career.
After Detroit tied the contest at 17, Green Bay took the lead for good on a touchdown run from DuJuan Harris, just brought up from the practice squad a couple weeks ago.
The victory was the Packers' 11th straight in the NFC North, dating back to 2010. Green Bay can clinch the NFC North division title with a victory over the Bears next Sunday.
