DETROIT (AP) — Don Carey returned a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown, and Detroit’s defensive front smothered Green Bay on Sunday, leading the Lions to a 19-7 victory over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

The Lions (2-1) came into the game with a secondary decimated by injuries, but that didn’t much matter with Rodgers under constant pressure. He was sacked twice and threw for only 162 yards, and Green Bay (1-2) wasn’t any better running the ball.

Reggie Bush added a 26-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter for Detroit, which had never beaten Green Bay with Rodgers healthy for the whole game.

The Packers managed only 223 yards of offense and lost despite forcing three turnovers.

Detroit linebacker Stephen Tulloch left with a knee injury that appeared to occur as he was celebrating a sack.
