Packers All Alone In First Place

The Green Bay Packers (9-4) continued a couple of streaks and moved atop the NFC North as they rallied from a 14-0 first half deficit to beat the Detroit Lions (4-9) at Lambeau Field last night, 27-20.  The Packers have now beaten the Lions 22 consecutive times in Wisconsin and they have won eleven straight against teams from the NFC North.  Head coach Mike McCarthy thought that it was a total team win…

The slip that Rodgers was referring to was the second quarter fumble that Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford lost.  The loose ball was scooped up by defensive end Mike Daniels, who returned it 43 yards for a score.  Daniels talked about that play, which cut Detroit’s lead to 14-10…

Last night’s win coupled with the Bears loss at Minnesota, puts the Packers in a position where they can wrap up the NFC North with a win at Chicago Sunday.  Corner Tramon Williams likes where the Packers are at…

The Packers will take on the Bears Sunday at Noon at Soldier Field.

Including the postseason, the Packers are now 95-65-7 against the Lions.

Under head coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers have won 13 of 14 games against Detroit.

The Packers have won seven of their last nine on Sunday night.  They are 20-6 all-time in Sunday night games for an NFL-best winning percentage of .760.


In the NFC North Sunday:
Minnesota (7-6) beat Chicago (8-5), 21-14
