The Detroit Lions (4-9) dropped their 5th game in a row, losing to the Green Bay Packers (9-4) at Lambeau Field, 27-20.

Detroit dominated early, building a 14-0 lead early. In the 1st quarter, the Lions first drive lasted 7:44 and ended in a Matthew Stafford 4-yard TD run on 4th and goal. 

The Lions next possession took 5:44 and Stafford hit Tony Scheffler for a 3-yard score to make a 14-0 game.

But Green Bay scored 27 of the game's next 30 points to take control and hold on for the win.

In the 2nd quarter, the Packers got a field goal from Mason Crosby, then rookie Mike Daniels recovered a Stafford fumble, and took it 43-yards for a touchdown to make it 14-10 Lions.

The Packers then took their 1st lead early in the 3rd quarter on Aaron Rodgers' 27-yard TD run.

After a Jason Hanson FG tied it up in the 3rd quarter, early in the 4th quarter, Green Bay's Dujuan Harris scored on a 14-yard TD, then Mason Crosby hit a 41-yard FG with 4:07 left to put the Packers up 10.

Jason Hanson hit a FG with 7 seconds left to bring Detroit within 7, then his onside kick attempt went out of bounds, giving the Packers the ball and the victory.

The Lions were led on offense by Calvin Johnson, who caught 10 passes for 118 yards. Johnson also went over the 1500-yard receiving mark on the season.

Next up for the Lions will be a trip to Arizona next Sunday, to take on a Cardinals team that has lost 9 straight after a 4-0 start.
