Ameer Abdullah fields Mason Crosby’s kick at the goal line and takes it to the 29-yard-line.

Matthew Stafford throws to Marvin Jones on a 12-yard route that slips through the receivers hands on first down. Kerryon Johnson gets the ball on second down and gets to the edge on his way to a 16-yard pickup that’ll move the chains to make it first-and-10 at the 45.

Stafford is pressured on his first-down throw and slings it sidearmed to Johnson for a gain of 3. Johnson gets the handoff on second down and picks up 6 to make it third-and-1. LeGarrette Blount takes his first carry of the game and gets just enough for a first down at the Green Bay 45-yard-line.

Blount is handed the ball again on the next play and loses a yard. Stafford takes it in the shotgun on second down and throws back-shoulder to Theo Riddick, who’s unable to come up with it. Third-and-11 coming up. Stafford is pressured on third down and launches one deep to Kenny Golladay, who makes a magnificent catch while diving backward into the end zone.

Frank Ragnow is called for illegal use of the hands, however, so the play is void and it’ll be third-and-21 at the Detroit 44-yard-line.

Injury: Packers defensive lineman Kenny Clark remains down after the play.

With a mile to reach the first down marker, it’s Johnson on the draw for a gain of 4.

Sam Martin’s punt rolls off Green Bay blocker Kevin King after a bounce and is picked up by Jamal Agnew at the 1-yard-line, making it Lions ball with first-and-goal coming up.

Mike McCarthy throws the challenge flag, thinking it may have touched a Lions player. The play will be reviewed.
