DETROIT (AP) — Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes, including a 22-yarder to Randall Cobb with 1:55 left, and the Green Bay Packers came through with a 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Mason Crosby made a 39-yard field goal with 19 seconds to go after missing two field goals earlier in the game.

Matthew Stafford couldn't put the Lions ahead on either of their last two drives in a game he'd like to forget.

Stafford threw two interceptions - one of which was returned 72 yards by Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings for a go-ahead score in the third quarter - and lost a fumble.

Green Bay (7-3) has won five straight and Detroit (4-6) has dropped two in a row.
