An interception of Matt Stafford proved to be a positive for the Lions despite them losing possession as Davon House made the grab on his one-yard line. The next play Lacy was decked in his own endzone, which resulted in two points for the home side.
Nate Freese then added a field goal to further extend the Lions' lead, but he missed late in the half to prevent his side taking an eight-point advantage into the break.
In the second half, both defenses showed great skill and determination to hold out against two of the best offenses in the NFL in a scoreless third quarter.
However, in the fourth quarter Detroit made their move to extend their lead when Reggie Bush found space over the left side of the line and he sprinted into the endzone from 26 yards out.
Green Bay had one late chance to get back into the game but Rodgers's pass to Jordy Nelson in the endzone on fourth down fell incomplete, allowing the home side to hold out for the victory.
