Matthew Stafford scored on a 4-yard bootleg, and the Detroit Lions had a 7-0 lead over the Green Bay Packers after the first quarter Sunday night.
The Packers are playing with only four defensive lineman, and the Lions wasted no time taking advantage. Using big tackle Riley Reiff as an extra blocker, they ran the ball nine times on the first drive. The Packers managed to stop Mikel Leshoure on third-and-1 at the Green Bay 4. But the Lions chose to go for it.
With Calvin Johnson drawing double coverage and the Packers biting on the fake handoff to Leshoure, Stafford had the left side of the field all to himself for the score on the bootleg.

Detroit Lions WR Kris Durham was promoted from the practice squad this week to replace WR Ryan Broyles and WR Titus Young, both of whom were put on the injured reserve this week.Durham certainly made his case to stay on the roster for next season with this catch. He laid out for this ball and reeled it in with such ease, that it rivals Calvin’s one-handed catch from last week...
ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz has consistently praised reserve running back Joique Bell this season.

Lions defensive end Willie Young suffered a nasty finger injury last month in Detroit’s November 18th game against the Packers. During an attempted tackle of Green Bay running back James Starks, Young’s left middle finger was sliced at the top knuckle, with the resulting cut being so deep that nerves were severed and the bone was exposed At the time Young knew it was bad...
Looking to end two streaks Sunday night in Green Bay, the Lions head into Week 14 looking relatively healthy with only a few question marks.

Maybeit would be the end of two long decades of road losses to the Packers.
Tony Scheffler was celebrating his touchdown with teammate Joique Bell. They looked as if they were pretending to shovel snow off of the Frozen Tundra.
The Detroit Lions travel into historic Lambeau Field Sunday night to do battle with the Green Bay Packers. The Frozen Tundra has been a house of horrors for The Detroit Lions as they continue to battle ghosts of the past and present. Detroit hasn’t won in Green Bay since George H. Bush was President all the way back on December 15th, 1991 by a score of 21-17.
This Packers team...
Green Bay stuck with its nickel and dime packages, even while being gashed by Lions running backs Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell. The second half was a different story, as the Packers slammed the door on the run game and made the Lions one-dimensional.
All this week we’ve heard about the tremendous losing streak the Lions have had at Lambeau Field. December 15th, 1991 was the last time the Lions beat the Packers in Green Bay by a score of 21 to 17. Whats pretty remarkable though about that game is the fact that two of the longest tenured players for each team weren’t even playing and I’m talking about Jason Hanson for the...
