Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes, including a 22-yarder to Randall Cobb with 1:55 left, and the Green Bay Packers came through with a 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
Mason Crosby made a 39-yard field goal with 19 seconds to go after missing two field goals earlier in the game.
Matthew Stafford couldn't put the Lions ahead on either of their last two drives in a game he'd like to forget.
Stafford threw two interceptions - one of which was returned 72 yards by Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings for a go-ahead score in the third quarter - and lost a fumble.
Green Bay (7-3) has won five straight and Detroit (4-6) has dropped two in a row.

The Green Bay Packers snatched a victory from the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon.
Aaron Rodgers’ touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with just less than two minutes to go in the game was the game winner and improved the Packers to 7-3 and increased their winning streak to five games.
Green Bay’s defense was the star of the game, as they made key plays and created four turnovers, turning...

Aaron Rodgers is a pretty sensitive guy.
Maybe not quite as sensitive as his interview on “60 Minutes” made him seem, but a caring and compassionate person nonetheless. Rodgers showed off his sensitive side yet again recently, as the Green Bay Packers quarterback teamed up with the MACC — Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer — Fund to help raise awareness for the work...
The Detroit Lions have watched Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers rise to league stardom on the field -- and off the field, with the endless "Discount Double Check" commercials. Although they have respect for their NFC counterparts, as one Lions defender stated, "there's no love lost between the two of us."
The Green Bay Packers use four turnovers, five sacks, and alate touchdown tosneak out of Detroit with a four point victory to extend their league leading winning streak to six.With what seems like half the team injured and literally half of the starting squad out with injury, Green Bay was able to make just enough plays to escape Detroit with a 24-20 victory, including five sacks...
M.D. Jennings caught the deflected pass, and there was no doubt about this interception.
Then it was simply a matter of how far he could return it.
''The ball was tipped and I was in the right position to make a play on the ball,'' the Green Bay defensive back said. ''I saw a bunch of offensive lineman. I was like `Man, I can't let an offensive lineman...
Randall Cobb led Green Bay in receiving Sunday with 74 yards on nine catches.Fantasy Spin:He hauled in the game-winning touchdown on a 22-yard strike from Aaron Rodgers with a minute and 55 seconds remaining in the game. It was Cobb's sixth touchdown in his last four games. At this point, we'd consider the second-year receiver a must-start.
The performance during the last five games has been a bit like the six-game run to a Super Bowl championship in 2010. Two years ago, Aaron Rodgers and the offense weren't great every week. It's the same story this year, but a young and improving defense has come to the rescue.
This Sunday the Lions welcome in the Green Bay Packers to Ford Field as Detroit looks to string some wins together in hopes of making a late season run at the playoffs. However this is certainly a Packers team that has found itself after a 2-3 start to the season. Since then Green Bay has turned in an impressive win in Houston and taken care of business with St. Louis, Jacksonville...
It was a win the Packers needed for many reasons, and they got it. Now at 7-3 with a 2-0 record in the division, Green Bay -- with four more games remaining against the NFC North -- controls its own playoff future throughout the rest of the season. It also sends Detroit (4-6) into a nearly impossible situation of making the postseason, therefore turning it into a three-team race...
As I am writing this I prepare myself for the responses “you are crazy” or “you’re an idiot”. I have already been diagnosed as a little crazy so I would agree with that response. When it comes to the 2011 Green Bay Packers vs. the 2012 Green Bay Packers though, I believe I may be on to something. How is it a 7-3 team could have better Super Bowl chances than a 15-1 team...
Tried to take a cocky risk going against Peyton Manning and got burned big time. My first loss of the year puts me at 8-1 on the season, which ain’t too shabby.

Sometimes 12-years with a College Football program is too much. In fact in major conference college football it often is.
12-years for Jeff Tedford at Cal was exactly that: Too long.
Tedford was fired Tuesday morning as the Golden Bears limped through a 3-9 season. And yes, the school owes him money. A lot of money. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million for the next three...
