(DETROIT) - Jim Ninowski swept the title-hopeful Green Bay Packers off their feet with a devastating first half passing attack that started the Lions toward a 23-10 win. Ninowski's completed 14 of 22 for 180 yards in the first half. Coupled with Green Bay blunders, the Lions had a 16-0 half-time lead. Green Bay fumbles led to two Detroit touchdowns. The Lions added a safety on a blocked punt and put together a 76 yard scoring drive in the first period. Ninowski had thrown only one touchdown pass in eight games and got his first one before the home folks on an 11-yard toss to Jim Gibbons in the third period. Ninowski scored another himself on a seven-yard run and Ken Webb plunged over for the other. Paul Hornung scored all of Green Bay's points and now is only 10 points away from a NFL record. The former Notre Dame star kicked a 12-yard field goal, ran eight yards for a touchdown and kicked the extra points for all of his teams points in the third period to cut Detroit's lead to 16-10. Willie Wood's fumble of a Detroit punt at the Green Bay 13 just four plays later killed off Green Bay's last real hope for victory. Wood signaled for a fair catch, but misjudged the ball and it trickled out of his hands behind him. A Detroit rookie, Bruce Haher, recovered the ball at the 13. Ninowski found Gibbons in the end zone for the touchdown pass two plays later.
