The Lions ran their losing streak in the state of Wisconsin to 22 games despite scoring the game’s first 14 points. The sloppy weather conditions may have contributed to a fumble by Matthew Stafford that was returned 43 yards for a touchdown by Mike Daniels to bring the Packers within 14-10 at halftime. Tied at 17 heading into the fourth quarter, the Packers scored the first ten points of the fourth to take control of the game. The Lions out-gained the Packers by nearly 100 yards but turned the ball over twice to just one by the Packers. It was a competitive effort from a fading team, but a 27-20 loss nonetheless.
