GREEN BAY, Wisc. — The waits continue for the Detroit Lions.

The Lions remained winless in Green Bay since 1991 and their drought of seasons without a division title was stretched to 21 after a 30-20 loss to the Packers on Sunday, giving Green Bay a fourth-straight NFC North championship and a first-round bye in the NFC Playoffs.

Aaron Rodgers accounted for three Packers touchdowns (two passing, one rushing) while playing through a torn calf muscle.

Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes — two to Calvin Johnson — for the Lions, who tied the game at 14 with 7:34 left in the third quarter.

Detroit (11-5) will go on the road to play the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday in the NFC Wild Card Round.
