Rodgers hurt, Lions beat Packers to end skids


DETROIT (AP) -- Drew Stanton threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Will Heller midway through the fourth quarter, and the Green Bay Packers couldn't come back without an injured Aaron Rodgers in the Detroit Lions' 7-3 win Sunday.

Detroit (3-10) snapped a five-game losing streak and a 19-game skid against the NFC North, the NFL's worst slump within a division since the merger four decades ago.

Green Bay (8-5) lost Rodgers and a game it desperately needed to win for playoff positioning. The star quarterback was knocked out in the second quarter with his second concussion this season.

Matt Flynn got Green Bay to the Detroit 31 before turning the ball over on downs with an incomplete pass into the end zone just past a diving Greg Jennings in the final minute.
