Lions Play Well But Lose To Packers, 28-26

Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Aaron Rodgers threw for three touchdowns and the Green Bay Packers overcame numerous mistakes for a second straight week and held off Detroit, 28-26, dealing the Lions their 23rd straight road loss.

Rodgers completed 12-of-17 passes for 181 yards, but was picked off twice for the Packers (3-1), whose current 10-game winning streak is the longest in the series in over 50 years, dating back to Detroit's 11-game surge from 1949-54.

Shaun Hill finished 34-of-54 for 331 yards with two TDs and a pair of interceptions for the Lions (0-4), who haven't won outside the Motor City since October 28, 2007 at Chicago. The NFL record is 24 road losses in a row, set by the Lions from 2001-03.

Hill made his third consecutive start at quarterback in place of Matthew Stafford, who continues to make progress in his rehab from a right shoulder injury.

Detroit gave the ball back by punting with 6:32 left and never got possession again as Green Bay pounded out six first downs on its final drive.
