Detroit wins 40-10, seizing first place in the NFC North by improving to 7-5. The Packers fall to 5-6-1.
Some quick notes before hitting the turkey:

- The Lions held the Packers to 24 yards on 15 carries.
- Matthew Stafford threw to 11 different Lions. Nine caught passes.
- Detroit had seven sacks after entering the day with just 16 through the first 11 games.
