DETROIT–The Packers and Lions were scoreless after one quarter of play at Ford Field on Thursday.

Detroit quickly moved the ball down the field on its opening possession, as quarterback Matt Stafford connected on two over-the-middle completions to Calvin Johnson that put the Lions into scoring position. Joique Bell converted a third-and-two with a 4-yard run to the Packers 22-yard line.

Reggie Bush gaind nine yards on second-and-nine, but Bush fumbled on the next play and Morgan Burnett recovered the fumble for the Packers, cancelling an almost-certain scoring drive for the Lions and giving the ball to Matt Flynn and the Packers offense at the Packers 10-yard line.

Flynn’s first pass on the Packers’ first play was a screen to Eddie Lacy that gained 20 yards. On third-and-eight, Flynn completed a 9-yard toss to Jordy Nelson. Again, Flynn would face third-and-eight, but this time he was sacked by Ziggy Ansah.

Sizable gains by Bush and Bell moved the Lions to their 31-yard line. On second-and-one, Stafford pitched a completion to Kris Durham for 14 yards to the Packers 46-yard line. The Packers continued to surrender big chunks of rushing yardage, as Bush ran for 12 yards and another first down, and then a screen pass to Bell broke loose for 27 yards to the Packers 7-yard line.

The quarter ended with the Lions facing third-and-goal at the 9-yard line.
