Make that 23.
The Lions fell to the Packers 22-9 Sunday, extending their losing streak in Wisconsin to 23 games.
Both teams struggled to get into the end zone until the 3rd quarter, when James Jones caught an 83-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers down the left sideline for a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter
It provided enough of a cushion for a defense that had the luxury of facing the Lions minus star receiver Calvin Johnson, out with a knee injury.
Penalties also bogged down Detroit. They had seven for 50 yards.
Matthew Stafford was 25-40 for 262 yards and one late touchdown. Stafford found Kris Durham from 13 yards out to make the score 22-9 in the 4th quarter.
Mason Crosby kicked five field goals.
