Packers rip Lions 27-20.

After Detroit jumped out to a 14-0 lead, the Packers dominated the rest of the way, coasting to a win at home and taking a game lead in the NFC North.

The Packers weren't exactly led by the usual suspects. Aaron Rodgers ran for a touchdown in the third quarter after it looked like he was pinned in the backfield, but Green Bay was mostly unconventional.

Reserve defensive end Mike Daniels recovered a fumble and returned it 43 yards in the second quarter, and running back DuJuan Harris, playing in his first NFL game, scored a touchdown in the 4th quarter to put the Packers up for good.

The Packers next game looms large. They visit Soldier Field for a game against the Bears that could clinch the NFC North.
