Lions hold 14-10 lead over Packers at halftime

GREEN BAY–The Detroit Lions held a 14-10 lead over the Packers at halftime of Sunday night’s game at Lambeau Field.

Quarterback Matt Stafford got off to a fast start with a 4-yard touchdown run that capped a 12-play, 80-yard drive on the Lions’ opening possession of the game. Stafford followed that scoring drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to tight end Tony Scheffler that ended an 11-play, 79-yard march.

Aaron Rodgers passed the Packers into scoring territory in the first quarter but he was sacked and stripped of the ball by Lions defensive end Lawrence Jackson. Rodgers moved the Packers into scoring range in the second quarter and Mason Crosby booted a 49-yard field goal.

The Packers’ big play of the first half was Packers rookie defensive lineman Mike Daniels’ 43-yard touchdown return of a Stafford fumble. The ball slipped out of Stafford’s hand as he was attempting to pass. Stafford had the Lions on the move toward another score when the fumble occurred.

Detroit fashioned a strong running game that gained over 100 yards and allowed the Lions to control the action along the line of scrimmage, but Stafford’s fumble and an interception by Packers cornerback Sam Shields spoiled an otherwise dominant performance.

The half was played in a steady snowfall, but playing conditions remained favorable.

Thanks to a Minnesota win over Chicago earlier in the day, the Packers can clinch the NFC North Division title with a win over the Lions and a win in Chicago next Sunday.
