Detroit Lions (3-3) 30, Green Bay Packers (4-2) 10
Sunday December 12th 1982 (at Green Bay)
(GREEN BAY) - Billy Sims rushed for 109 yards and an aroused Detroit defense intercepted five passes to help the Lions end a three-game losing streak with a 30-10 rout of Green Bay. Detroit's first victory since the players' strike ended - and its first at Green Bay since 1975 - evened the Lions' record at 3-3. Green Bay, flirting with its first playoff appearance since 1972, fell to 4-2 and lost its share of the NFC lead. Sims, held to just 43 yards in last week's loss to the New York Jets, carried 29 times and scored the Lions' first touchdown on a 1-yard dive in the first quarter. Detroit also tallied on a 96-yard kickoff return by Alvin Hall, a 21-yard pass from Gary Danielson to Freddie Scott and three Eddie Murray field goals.
