The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers are tied 17-17 as they head into the fourth quarter.

Green Bay claimed a 17-14 lead early in the third quarter on a 27-yard touchdown run by quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That run capped an eight play, 74-yard scoring drive. Detroit answered with a Jason Hanson field goal a few minutes later to knot the score at 17.

Detroit took a 14-10 lead into halftime thanks to a Matthew Stafford touchdown run and touchdown pass to Tony Scheffler. The Lions also played well defensively in the first two quarters, limiting the Packers to fewer than 100 yards of offense. Green Bay's only touchdown of the opening half came on a fumble returned for a score by Mike Daniels.

Stafford has completed 18 of 25 pass attempts for 170 yards. Calvin Johnson is the Lions' leading receiver, while Mikel Leshoure leads the team in rushing yardage. The Lions have 284 yards of total offense.
