GREEN BAY, WISC. --- The Green Bay Packers narrowly escaped an upset at home against the Detroit Lions Sunday afternoon, winning 28-26 and moving to (3-1) on the season.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for 181 yards and 3 touchdowns, but also threw 2 interceptions.

Green Bay appeared ready to rout the Lions after Charles Woodson returned an interception for a touchdown early in the third quarter, but Shaun Hill led a Detroit rally that fell just short.

It is the 20th consecutive Lions loss to the Packers when playing in the state of Wisconsin.

Green Bay will travel to Washington next week to take on the Redskins.
