Halftime: Packers 21 - Lions 10

First half mission accomplished! The Packers dominated the Lions, scoring 21 unanswered points after Detroit got a field goal on their opening drive. Ryan Grant had 57 yards in 6 carries, including a 27-yard TD run, before leaving with a left shoulder stinger with about 6 minutes left in the first quarter. He only needed 44 more yards to crack the 1,000-yard mark. He would have had that no problem. As a precaution, they are holding him out. Brett threw 2 TD passes, one to Koren Robinson and the second to Bubba Franks. Brett was 9 of 11 for 99 yards and the 2 TDs before giving way early in the second quarter to Craig Nall. The Pack scored on their first 3 possessions.

All this is especially impressive considering the Pack sat out 7 starters, including Donald Driver, Donald Lee, Gregg Jennings, Charles Woodson and Aaron Kampman among that group.

Detroit scored a TD late in the half on a blown pass coverage.

Lookin' good.
