Detroit Lions (10-4) 20, Green Bay Packers (6-8) 0
Sunday December 20th 1970 (at Detroit)
(DETROIT) - Lem Barney returned a pass interception 49 yards for a touchdown, returned a punt 65 yards to set up another, and ran back a kickoff 74 yards to set up a field goal as the Lions surged into the playoffs with a 20-0 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The Lions opened up a 3-0 halftime lead with a field goal in the third quarter and 14 points in the final period, sparked by Barney's sensational runbacks. The triumph was a must for Detroit in order to reach the NFC playoffs with the best record of any second-place team in the conference. The Packers had done a fantastic job of containing Detroit's fine offense, including the passing of Greg Landry. Detroit didn't get its first down nor Landry his first complete pass until five minutes remaining in the first half.
