Packers beat Lions 48-25


DETROIT (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes in the first four drives of his second start today and lead the Green Bay Packers to a 48-25 win over the Detroit Lions.

Green Bay led 21-0 midway through the second quarter but fell behind by a point with just over seven minutes left after Calvin Johnson caught his second touchdown in the fourth quarter.

But the Packers went back ahead with a field goal, then turned the game back into a rout with three straight interceptions.

Charles Woodson and Nick Collins returned two of the picks for touchdowns, giving Green Bay a lopsided lead again.

The Lions are 0-2 for the fifth time since 2001.
