DETROIT–Reggie Bush scored on a 26-yard run with 10:40 to play in the fourth quarter, and the Lions held on for a 19-7 win over the Packers at Ford Field on Sunday.

Bush’s touchdown run capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive that was the clincher in a game that produced much less offense than expected from two explosive teams. The win left the Lions in first place in the NFC North at 2-1; the 1-1 Bears play at the Jets on Monday night. The Packers fell to 1-2 and will play in Chicago next Sunday.

Following Bush’s touchdown run, the Packers moved quickly down the field but, on fourth-and-5 from the Lions 20, Rodgers threw incomplete for Jordy Nelson at the goal line. The Lions took possession needing only to kill the remaining 6:54 on the clock.

They killed all of it.

Rodgers finished the game having completed 16 of 27 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown. Stafford was 22 of 34 for 246 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions.
