Lions fall to the Packers 22-9. - Oct 7th, 2013 - Sports

The Green Bay Packers defense contained the undermanned Detroit Lions for a 22-9 win Sunday.

Detroit Lions star receiver Calvin Johnson was out for their divisional showdown against the Packers.

The team's leading receiver had been sidelined two days last week with a knee injury before participating in practice on a limited basis Friday. He had been listed as questionable.

The Lions were already without Nate Burleson. Johnson has 21 catches for 312 yards and four touchdowns, while Burleson had 19 catches for 239 yards. Detroit's next leading wideout is Kris Durham with five catches for 102 yards.

The Detroit Lions take on Cleveland next week.
