Lions hold 26-10 lead heading into fourth quarter

Green Bay Packers Quarterback Matt Flynn

DETROIT–The Lions had lengthened their lead over the Packers to 26-10 heading into the fourth quarter of today’s game at Ford Field.

Green Bay began the second half with its fourth consecutive three-and-out, and the Lions took possession of the ball at their 37-yard line.

Quarterback Matt Stafford’s pass to Calvin Johnson initiated another drive into Packers territory. On third-and-one, Stafford completed a 12-yard strike to Johnson at the 20-yard line. On the next play, Johnson had an apparent touchdown pass in his hands, but failed to hold onto the ball as he fell to the ground. Two plays after that, however, Johnson caught a pass over the middle, broke a tackle and scored.

With 9:08 to play in the third quarter, the Lions had a 24-10 lead in a game that was much more lopsided statistically. The Lions had gained 403 yards of offense to the Packers’ 43, and time of possession was 15-and-a-half minutes in the Lions’ favor.

The Lions immediately regained possession when Matt Flynn was sacked and stripped of the football. The Lions recovered the fumble at the Packers 37-yard line. Cornerback Sam Shields killed the potential scoring threat, however, by intercepting a pass intended for Johnson in the end zone. Flynn, however, was intercepted by DeAndre Levy and the Lions had the ball at their 35-yard line.

Flynn was sacked by Ndamukong Suh for a safety with :53 to play in the third quarter. It was the seventh time Flynn had been sacked in the game.
