Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The Green Bay Packers moved within one win of the NFC North regular season title, beating Detroit 27-20 on Sunday night at Lambeau Field.

Aaron Rodgers completed 14-of-24 passes for 173 yards, but his biggest play came on a third quarter 27-yard touchdown run.

Green Bay players combined for 140 yards rushing in the game, which was played for the most part in windy and snowy conditions in Green Bay, Wis.

The Packers have now won 22 straight games against the Lions at Lambeau Field, the longest such streak in the NFL.

Green Bay improves to (9-4) overall and (6-1) at home this season, and the team will next be in action Dec. 16 on the road against Chicago.
