GREEN BAY, Wis. -- And so it continues. For the 23rd consecutive time, the Green Bay Packers picked up a home win over the Detroit Lions. Despite getting a shot against the Packers on the road every season as divisional opponents, the Lions were unable to break a streak Sunday afternoon that began more than two decades ago. "With Detroit, I don't know if it's a mindset with them coming here, like maybe they think we have their number here at home or whatnot," cornerback Davon House said. "It's incredible. That winning streak is amazing." House added that one of the Lions' running backs approached him after the game and said, "We can't beat you guys here." House wouldn't specifically mention that player's name in an attempt to not make him "look bad." However, House thought it was "kind of funny" that even Detroit's players have started to embrace the difficulty of ending the longest regular-season home winning streak against one opponent in NFL history. "It's a pretty good streak," starting left guard Josh Sitton said. "It's almost unheard of. What, 23 years now? That's a long time. I wouldn't like to come over here and play us if I were them." No 100-yard rusher ... barely: One more yard is all that running back Eddie Lacy needed. If Lacy would have finished just slightly better than his 99-yard rushing performance, it would have been the first time since 2006 that the Packers had three consecutive games with a 100-yard rusher. "I wouldn't say I'm disappointed," Lacy said. "Overall, it was a great game. I got more than I did in the past and it's just a stepping stone, and I'm just going to continue to play the best I can." Lacy carried the ball 23 times. Green Bay had the ball with Lacy on the field as the clock wound down in the fourth quarter, but Aaron Rodgers took a knee instead of running one more play. "I just knew I was close to 100 and I was just trying to get it," Lacy said. In 2006, Packers running backs Noah Herron, Vernand Morency and Ahman Green had three consecutive games over 100 yards. Green Bay hasn't had one player or any combination of three running backs have back-to-back-to-back games with 100 rushing yards since then. "I would have loved to have seen Eddie Lacy get over 100," coach Mike McCarthy said. "I understand he was pretty close there at the end." Hawk helmet malfunction: Football players are typically hidden behind their facemask. That wasn't the case Sunday for Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk, who frequently had his helmet taken off. Hawk was told that there were four or five occasions in which he had to pick his helmet up off the ground. "I think the biggest reason is I don't like my chin strap very tight, because I have to talk a lot and communicate," Hawk said. "I don't know. Maybe I need to go back to the old-school helmet. I got this stupid new-age helmet that they like to push on guys. So it might be that. I don't know. Maybe I need my old one that Brett Favre used to wear." Hawk had players ask him on the field if he was just trying to get more face time with the cameras. "No, I keep my helmet on even in introductions," Hawk said. "So, no, I'm not doing that."
