Packers top Lions, close in on division title
GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers added even more spice to next weekend's game at Soldier Field, moving within a win over the Bears of clinching the NFC North title with their 27-20 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday night.
DaJuan Harris rushed for a score in the first NFL game of his career, Aaron Rodgers added the longest TD run of his career and Mike Daniels returned a fumble 43 yards as the Packers (9-4) opened a one-game lead over the Bears. Beat the Bears next weekend at Soldier Field, and Green Bay wins the NFC North for a second straight year.
Calvin Johnson had 118 yards receiving to put him over 1,500 for the year, but it wasn't enough to keep the Lions (4-9) from dropping their fifth straight. This was the third straight game they've blown a lead of 10-plus points, tying an NFL record shared by six other teams. After touchdowns on their first two drives, the Lions could only manage a pair of field goals by Jason Hanson.
