GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are a victory away from clinching the NFC North title after beating the Detroit Lions 27-20 on Sunday night. DaJuan Harris rushed for a score in his first NFL game, Aaron Rodgers added the longest TD run of his career, and Mike Daniels returned a fumble 43 yards as the Packers (9-4) opened a one-game lead over Chicago. Beat the Bears next weekend at Soldier Field, and Green Bay will win the NFC North for a second straight year. The loss was the fifth straight for Detroit (4-9). This wasn't quite as excruciating as the previous three, though, when the Lions gave up fourth-quarter leads and fell by a total of nine points. The Packers have won 22 straight at home against the Lions, the longest streak in the NFL.

Lions at Packers: NFL's longest home win streak

GREEN BAY, Wis. Aaron Rodgers did not want to be the quarterback responsible for ending the Packers' 21-year win streak over the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. But early in the second quarter Sunday night, it was starting to look as if Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford was going to help his team snap the skid that began in 1991 when he was only three years old. "It was...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- So many aspects of the NFL are changing.
