NFL – The Packers And Lions Both Win

Posted on November 23, 2015 in Professional Sports News.

Aaron Rodgers was 16 of 34 for 212 yards passing with a pair of touchdowns as the Packers stopped a three-game losing streak with a convincing 30-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday to pull even in the NFC North race.

James Jones had six catches for 109 yards including a great catch for a touchdown.

Eddie Lacy ran for a season-high 100 yards on 22 carries and the Packers (7-3) beat the rival Vikings for the 10th time in the last 11 meetings with Rodgers at quarterback.

He has thrown for 28 touchdown passes with just three interceptions in those games.


Matthew Stafford’s five-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter propelled the Lions to an 18-13 win over the Raiders at Ford Field on Sunday.

Detroit led 9-0 at the half before Oakland scored 13 points in the third quarter to take the lead.

Detroit held the Raiders to 214 yards and 13 first downs, both season lows for Oakland.

The only touchdown by the Raiders (4-6) came after an interception thrown by Derek Carr was negated by a defensive holding penalty.

Stafford was 22-of-35 for 282 yards passing.

Calvin Johnston had a team-high 88 yards receiving for the Lions.

The Lions are now 3-and-7 and host the Eagles on Thanksgiving.
