DETROIT (WSAU-TSN) Aaron Rodgers had two touchdown passes, including the game-winner to Randall Cobb late in the fourth quarter as the Green Bay Packers took a 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions in an NFC North battle at Ford Field.
Rodgers passed for 236 yards and an interception on 19-of-27 attempts with Cobb and Jermichael Finley each catching a score for the Packers (7-3), who have won five straight.
James Starks had 25 carries for 74 yards while Mason Crosby missed two field goals, but did make one late for Green Bay, which is 2-0 in division play this season.
Matthew Stafford had a rough day as he went just 17-for-39 with 262 yards and a touchdown along with two interceptions and a lost fumble for the Lions (4-6), who have dropped two straight and fell to 0-4 in division play this season. Calvin Johnson caught five passes for 139 yards and a touchdown.
If the season were to end today, the Packers would be in the playoffs as the number-1 wildcard team. The Packers could more into a tie for the NFC North division lead, if the 49ers beat the Bears on Monday night.
The Packers play the New York Giants on the road next Sunday night.
