Packers on a charge in game, season

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers added more spice to this coming weekend's game in Chicago, moving within one win of the NFC North title with their victory over the Lions.

Former Brooksville Central High star DuJuan Harris rushed for a score in his first game action with the Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers added the longest touchdown run of his career as Green Bay opened a one-game lead over Chicago. A win Sunday at Soldier Field gives Green Bay the division.

Calvin Johnson had 118 yards receiving to put him over 1,500 for the year, but it wasn't enough to keep the Lions from dropping their fifth straight. This was the third straight game they've blown a lead of 10-plus points, tying a record shared by six other teams.

The Packers have won 22 straight at home against the Lions, the longest streak in the NFL.

Green Bay took the lead on Rodgers' 27-yard scoring run in the third quarter.
