DaJuan Harris rushed for a score in his first appearance for the Packers, Aaron Rodgers added the longest TD run of his career, and Mike Daniels returned a fumble 43 yards as the Packers (9-4) opened a one-game lead over Chicago.

If Green Bay beat the Bears next weekend at Soldier Field, and they will win the NFC North for a second straight year.

The loss was the fifth straight for Detroit (4-9). This was not quite as excruciating as the previous three, though, when the Lions gave up fourth-quarter leads and fell by a total of nine points.

The Packers have won 22 straight at home against the Lions, the longest streak in the NFL.


In San Francisco, Frank Gore ran for a one-yard touchdown and reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career.

Gore finished with 63 yards, Anthony Dixon also had a one-yard scoring run and Colin Kaepernick ran for a late 50-yard touchdown and threw for 185 yards in his fourth straight start since being promoted over Alex Smith.

In other play on Sunday, it was:

‧ Vikings 21, Bears 14

‧ Browns 30, Chiefs 7

‧ Chargers 34, Steelers 24

‧ Colts 27, Titans 23

‧ Jets 17, Jaguars 10

‧ Eagles 23, Buccaneers 21

‧ Rams 15, Bills 12

‧ Panthers 30, Falcons 20
