Packers Edge Lions 11/18/12

The Packers hold off the Lions 24-20.

It wasn't their prettiest win over the season, but the Packers beat a team they're used to beating. It's only sweeter that the Detroit Lions are division rivals.

The Packers forced Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford into three turnovers, keeping the young signal caller winless against Green Bay since he entered the league in 2009. Stafford also threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns.

The Lions had a chance to take the lead on a late game drive, but Stafford's 4th down throw intended for Tony Scheffler was knocked away by Packers defensive back Jerron McMillan.

Randall Cobb continued to emerge as a top receiving threat, catching nine balls for a team high 74 yards, including one touchdown.
