End of 3rd quarter: Packers 24 - Lions 9

The Lions scored a field goal on their first possession of the half to make it a 21-6 game. The Packers only error of the game so far came when QB Aaron Rodgers held the ball a bit too long in the pocket and had the ball stripped from him; it was recovered by the Lions at about the Packers 30-yard line. Fortunately, the Packers defense held and the Lions again had to settle for a field goal. Packers 21 - Lions 9.

The Packers then were able to generate a drive to make it first and goal from just inside the Lions' 10-yard line. For the first time in four such occasions in this game, though, the Packers were unable to score a touchdown. They settled for a Mason Crosby 26-yard field goal to go up 24-9 with a little over 2 minutes remaining in the quarter.

Packers sacks in the quarter came courtesy of A.J. Hawk and Cullen Jenkins.

Fifteen minutes to be 2-0.
