Packers can clinch following 27-20 win over Lions

GREEN BAY–The Packers can clinch their second consecutive NFC North Division title with a win in Chicago next Sunday, following a 27-20 win over the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field on Sunday night.

Aaron Rodgers’ 27-yard scramble for a touchdown in the third quarter gave the Packers their first lead of the night, 17-14, and running back DuJuan Harris broke a 17-17 tie with a 14-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Mason Crosby clinched the win with a 41-yard field goal with about four minutes to play in the game.

The Lions scored touchdowns on each of their first two possessions of the game to take a 14-0 lead. Crosby cut the Packers’ deficit to 14-3 and then rookie defensive lineman Mike Daniels returned a Matt Stafford fumble 43 yards for a touchdown that left the Packers trailing by only four points at halftime, despite the Lions having dominated play.

Rodgers completed 14 of 24 passes for 173 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. Alex Green led the Packers with 69 yards rushing and cornerback Sam Shields intercepted a pass.

At 9-4, the Packers hold a one-game lead over Chicago and a two-game lead over Minnesota, which defeated Chicago earlier on Sunday.
