DETROIT, MI (WHBL) - The Green Bay Packers had their lowest offensive output in seven years as they got crushed by the Lions in Detroit 40-10 on Thanksgiving Day.  The Packers only amassed 126 total yards, their lowest since November of 2006 when they were shut out by New England.   Detroit scored 37 unanswered points, as the Lions won their first Thanksgiving game since 2003.  They took sole possession of first place in the N-F-C North Division at 7-5, a half-game ahead of Chicago and a game-and-a-half ahead of Green Bay which is now 5-6-1.  Packers quarterback Matt Flynn was sacked seven times - once in the end zone by Ndamukong Suh for a safety.   Flynn threw for 139 yards with an interception and two lost fumbles.  All aspects of the Packers' game suffered with Aaron Rodgers still out with his broken collarbone.  Coach Mike McCarthy said it was a case of a "wounded team that got drilled by a good football team."  Green Bay is now 0-4-1 without Rodgers.  The Packers' only touchdown came on defense, when Morgan Burnett recovered a fumble deep in Detroit territory and ran it in for a yard.  Green Bay had four takeaways - two fumble recoveries and two interceptions - and Lions' coach Jim Schwartz said the shellacking could have been worse had it not been for the Pack's plus-one turnover differential.  As it was, Green Bay could not stop the Lions from amassing 561 total yards, including Matthew Stafford's 330 passing yards with three scores.  

  Calvin Johnson had six catches for 101 yards and a touchdown, and he broke Jerry Rice's N-F-L record for receiving yards in a three-year stretch with 4,944.  Reggie Bush had 182 total yards plus a score for the Lions.  The Packers had only 43 yards in the first half, their fewest since November of 2000 against Minnesota.  And the Pack didn't reach the 100-yard mark until just over a minute left, when Flynn hit Jordy Nelson for 56 yards.  Eddie Lacy ran for just 16 yards on 10 carries.  The Packers' next game is December 8th at home against Atlanta.
