Green Bay 34 Detroit 27. Aaron Rogers exploits an shorthanded Detroit defense with big pass plays and Eddie Lacy ran for 107 yards behind a Green Bay front line that was able to open holes. Green Bay's defense spent time in the first half in Detroit's backfield registering three sacks, some tackles for losses, forcing Matthew Stafford to run for his life on at least one occasion. The Lions were largely one dimensional gaining only 50 yards on the ground.

Chicago 17 Detroit 14.  Inability to finish drives, dropped passes, and penalties that stalled drives doom Detroit.  Two drives were stopped by interceptions, one in which Golden Tate ran the wrong pass route and the other when Matthew Stafford didn't see the cornerback reading the pass route - both turnovers occurring in the red zone.  Detroit was unable to get a run game going against a banged up Chicago defense and were also forced to settle for field goals.  Detroit's lone touchdown came with 1:52 left in when Chicago's punter outkicked his coverage and allowed an 85 punt return.

Detroit 24 Philadelphia 23.  A fumble recovery at the Philadelphia 45 after Ryan Matthews carried by the ball in the wrong arm and got stripped by Darius Slay.  The fumble recovery allowed Detroit's Matt Prater to kick a game winning 29 yard field goal.  The Eagles hurt themselves with major penalties, three at the end of the first half.  Even then, blown coverage by Detroit turned a third and 36 into a fourth and 15 and allowed the Eagles to kick a 50 yard field goal to end the first half.  They also failed to finish two other drives, one after recovering a fumble at the Detroit 22 and had to settle for a field goal.  Detroit followed their usual pattern of starting out strong and failing to counter opposing teams' adjustments in failing to hold 14-0 and 21-7 leads.
