Detroit Lions Record
November 24, 2011 by staff
Aaron Rodgers threw for 307 yards and two touchdowns at Ford Field in Detroit as the Packers joined the 1998 Denver Broncos as the second defending Super Bowl champion to win its first 11 games.
The Packers are the first undefeated NFL team to win on the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday since the Chicago Bears in 1934.
Green Bay has now won 17 consecutive games, including the playoffs, the longest streak in team history. The Lions fell to 7-4 and into third place in the National Football Conference’s North Division behind Green Bay and Chicago.
It was the 20th Thanksgiving meeting between the Packers and Lions, the most matchups between any two teams on the holiday. Green Bay has won 11 of the past 12 games between the division rivals and avenged a 7-3 loss to Detroit in their previous meeting, on Dec. 12 of last season.
There are two more Thanksgiving NFL games today, as the Dallas Cowboys host the Miami Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers visit the Baltimore Ravens.
The Packers were able to take advantage of 3 interceptions by Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Green Bay led 7-0 at half, after a three-yard pass from Rodgers to Greg Jennings.
