DETROIT -

Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and the Green Bay Packers built a big lead in the third quarter, taking advantage of Ndamukong Suh's ejection and beating the Detroit Lions 27-15 Thursday.

The defending champion Packers (11-0) have won 17 straight, including the playoffs. They passed what was expected to be one of their toughest tests toward joining the 2007 New England Patriots as the NFL's only teams to have 16-0 regular seasons.

Detroit (7-4) has lost a franchise-record eight straight on Thanksgiving and added to its misery in ugly fashion.

Suh was tossed for stepping on Evan Dietrich-Smith's arm and Matthew Stafford threw three interceptions.

The Packers turned Stafford's interceptions into two TDs and a field goal.
