    Coming off their bye, the Packers owner was concerned there was go to be some rust on their game. However, that was not the case as they played their best football to date. On the first series of the game, Aaron Rodgers hits Greg Jennings for 11 yards but Jennings runs another 56 for a 67 yard pass. The sole defensive gameplan coming into this game was to shut down Calvin Johnson. On the Lions first series Tramon Williams jumped a crossing route and intercepted the ball. That was his first of 3 interceptions on the day. The Packers took advantage and Cedric Benson punched it in from 6 yards. The Lions would get the ball back and Reggie Bush would take it in from 5 yards to end the first quarter. Packers ahead 14-7.

    The second quarter was all Packers. Rodgers hits Jermichael Finley over the middle for 12 yards and Finley keeps running another 58 for a 70 yard score. The Packers next series Greg Jennings receives a 21 yard pass for the score. Nelson feeling a little left out of the air attack, takes a 33 yard Rodgers pass and runs another 32 for a 65 yard touchdown to end the second quarter scoring, 35-7.

    Insert Graham Harrel to start the third. He never threw a pass. Sam Shields had a pick six in the third, 42-7. Newly acquired Bush hauled in a 13 yard pass to end third quarter scoring. 42-14. The scoring ended in the 4th as a Woodson picked up a fumble and ran up field for a 71 yard touchdown.
