PONTIAC, MICH., SEPT. 30 -- Don Majkowski rallied Green Bay for two fourth-quarter touchdowns, and Detroit's Eddie Murray missed his fourth field goal with three seconds to play today as the Packers beat the Lions, 24-21.
Majkowski, just hitting his stride after a lengthy contract holdout, completed 28 of 46 passes for 289 yards. Rodney Peete completed 17 of 34 for 200 yards and one touchdown. He also had a seven-yard scoring run for Detroit (1-3).
With Majkowski completing five of six passes for 44 yards and running for 15, the Packers (2-2) drove 61 yards in eight plays to cut the deficit to 21-17 with 11:01 left in the fourth quarter. He flipped four yards to Michael Haddix for the score.
Mel Gray returned the ensuing kickoff 43 yards. The Lions drove to the 34 but Murray missed a 50-yard attempt with 7:28 left.
Perry Kemp's fumble two plays later was recovered by Dennis Gibson and the Lions drove to the 33. But Murray missed a 51-yarder.
Majkowski then drove the Packers 66 yards in nine plays, hitting Jeff Query from for the go-ahead score with 55 seconds remaining.
"The final drive really reminded me of last year," said Majkowski, who helped Green Bay win seven games by four points or fewer.
Detroit then drove to the 26 where Murray was wide-left on a 44-yard attempt with three seconds remaining.
