Packers, barely, over Lions

by

GREEN BAY, Wis (TSN-WSAU) Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers overcame numerous mistakes for a second straight week and held off Detroit, 28-26, dealing the Lions their 23rd straight road loss.

Rodgers completed 12-of-17 passes for 181 yards, but was picked off twice for the Packers (3-1), whose current 10-game winning streak is the longest in the series in over 50 years, dating back to Detroit's 11-game surge from 1949-54.

The Lions got within a field goal in the 4th quarter, but the Packers rediscovered the running game and were able to run out the clock to preserve the win. Detroit gave the ball back by punting with 6:32 left and never got possession again as Green Bay pounded out six first downs on its final drive.

Shaun Hill finished 34-of-54 for 331 yards with two TDs and a pair of interceptions for the Lions (0-4), who haven't won outside the Motor City since October 28, 2007 at Chicago. The NFL record is 24 road losses in a row, set by the Lions from 2001-03.

The Packers play the Redskins in Washington next week at 12-noon.

Hill made his third consecutive start at quarterback in place of Matthew Stafford, who continues to make progress in his rehab from a right shoulder injury.
