GREEN BAY–The Packers broke Sunday’s game open with two big plays in the third quarter and held a 16-3 lead against the Detroit Lions.

An 83-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to James Jones was the crowning blow with 3:12 left in the quarter.

Earlier in the quarter, Randall Cobb broke loose for a 67-yard run, with the Packers clinging to a 3-point lead and pinned deep in their own end of the field. Again, however, the drive stalled and the Packers had to settle for a field goal. Mason Crosby was good from 31 yards.

The Lions, playing without star wide receiver Calvin Johnson, continued their struggles on offense. They followed Crosby’s field goal with a three-and-out.
