Packers Blow By Lions

Tom Lynn /Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wis.) -- In snowy conditions, the Green Bay Packers relied on their running game to beat the Detroit Lions.

Green Bay rushed for 140 yards in a 27-20 comeback win over the Lions on Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers scored a rushing touchdown and threw for 173 yards on a Lions team that has lost 22 straight games in Green Bay.

The Packers (9-4) can win the NFC North with a win at Chicago next week. "We're first in the division by a game and we put ourselves in good position, not only for the division but potentially for a first-round bye. The division is our first goal," Rodgers said. "We can wrap things up next week. It's a tough opponent, a tough place to play. There's a lot on the line."

The Lions (4-9) got a rushing and passing touchdown from Matthew Stafford, but lost their fifth straight game.
