GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Calvin Johnson showed up for the Detroit Lions, just not in uniform.
With their star receiver watching warmups from the sideline in a T-shirt and a gray backward Detroit cap, the undermanned Lions lost to the Green Bay Packers 22-9 on Sunday.
Not that they used Johnson's absence as an excuse.
"We didn't get it done well enough today -- offense, defense or special teams," coach Jim Schwartz said. "With or without Calvin, that was the story of the game -- not whether Calvin played or not."
It sure didn't help, though.
Reggie Bush was held to 44 yards on 13 carries and four catches for 25 yards. The Packers' improved run defense mostly contained the dangerous Bush on first down, leaving the Lions with long second- and third-down situations.
The Packers (2-2) extended their winning streak in Wisconsin over the Lions to 23.
Still, the Lions trailed by just 16 late because the Packers had to settle for field goals. They drove to the Packers 30 with 7:16 left before three straight incompletions left them headed back to the sideline.
Detroit especially felt Johnson's absence then. A pass attempt on fourth-and-3 went awry after Kris Durham slipped on the turf.
Schwartz declined to offer more details on the extent of Johnson's injury. Listed as questionable, Johnson missed a couple days of practice last week before taking part on a limited basis Friday.
Johnson missed his first regular-season game since 2010. Matthew Stafford, who finished 25 for 40 for 262 yards, said he had an inkling Saturday that Johnson might be out.
"He's one of the guys on our team that can stretch the field," Stafford said. "I know he wanted to be out there. It's a tough situation we were in."
The Lions' only touchdown came late when Stafford found Durham for a 13-yard score.
"Just being able to keep them in short and intermediate passes definitely helped us out," Packers linebacker Mike Neal said. "Calvin's a big part of their game plan, and without him, I think they put a lot on other guys. It was a big plus for us."
For a change, defense set the pace for the Packers before the offense caught up.
Mason Crosby kicked five field goals. The Green Bay offense struggled to get into the end zone until Rodgers found James Jones on an 83-yard scoring pass down the left sideline for a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter.
"We held them to five field goals," safety Glover Quin said. "The only touchdown they scored was a big play, so if they don't get that play, we probably hold them to another field goal."
Rodgers was 20 for 30 for 274 yards, and Eddie Lacy ran for 99 yards on 23 carries in his return from a concussion. Jones finished with four catches for 127 yards.
BRONCOS 51, COWBOYS 48
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Matt Prater kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired and Peyton Manning and Denver overcame the first 500-yard passing game in Dallas history to keep the Broncos unbeaten with a 51-48 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday.
Manning maintained his record pace of touchdown passes to start the season and finished with 414 yards and four scores for Denver (5-0).
Tony Romo threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns for Dallas (2-3), but he was intercepted by Danny Trevanthan inside the Dallas 30 to set up Prater's winning kick.
The teams combined for 1,039 yards of total offense in the second-highest scoring game in regulation since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970, according to STATS.
Cincinnati and Cleveland combined for 106 points in the Browns' 58-48 win in 2004.
RAIDERS 27, CHARGERS 17
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Terrelle Pryor threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter and Charles Woodson tied an NFL record with his 13th defensive touchdown to lead Oakland.
Pryor got the Raiders (2-3) off to a fast start in the latest West Coast game in NFL history with a 44-yard touchdown pass to Rod Streater on Oakland's first play from scrimmage. The Raiders then used five turnovers, a goal-line stand, Woodson's 25-yard return of Danny Woodhead's fumble and two long field goals by Sebastian Janikowski to beat the Chargers (2-3).
COLTS 34, SEAHAWKS 28
INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes and Donald Brown scored the go-ahead TD with 8:55 to go.
The Seahawks (4-1) lost their first regular-season game since last Nov. 25.
Delano Howell scored on a 61-yard return of a blocked field goal for Indy (4-1).
Luck led his ninth career fourth-quarter comeback by going 16 of 29 for 229 yards, beating Russell Wilson in their first matchup.
SAINTS 26, BEARS 18
CHICAGO -- Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes to Pierre Thomas, Jimmy Graham tied an NFL record with another 100-yard game and the New Orleans Saints remained unbeaten.
Graham continued his torrid start for the Saints (5-0), catching 10 balls for 135 yards in his fourth consecutive 100-yard game -- matching an NFL record for a tight end. Tony Gonzalez was the first to accomplish the streak in 2000, and Graham matched it in 2011.
Jay Cutler threw for 358 yards and two touchdowns for Chicago (3-2), which has lost two in a row.
CHIEFS 26, TITANS 17
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jamaal Charles scored a 1-yard touchdown with 6:23 left, and the Chiefs rallied to keep up their perfect start.
The Chiefs (5-0) are off to their best start since 2003, when they won their first nine games. This win came despite blowing a 13-0 halftime lead in this early AFC showdown between these surprising teams bouncing back after losing seasons.
The Titans (3-2) couldn't have been more out of synch in the first half with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting for Jake Locker, sidelined with his sprained right hip. He missed his first five passes and went three-and-out on his first five series before guiding Tennessee to 17 straight points in the second half.
RAVENS 26, DOLPHINS 23
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Justin Tucker kicked a 44-yard field goal to put the Baltimore Ravens ahead with 1:42 left, and they withstood a frantic comeback bid.
Ryan Tannehill completed a 46-yard pass to Brandon Gibson on fourth down to keep Miami's hopes alive, but Caleb Sturgis then missed a 57-yard field goal attempt wide left with 33 seconds to go.
The Ravens (3-2) bounced back from a loss last week at Buffalo and won on the road for the first time this season. The Dolphins (3-2) lost their second game in a row.
EAGLES 36, GIANTS 21
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Nick Foles threw for two touchdowns and led four scoring drives after taking over for an injured Michael Vick late in the second quarter, and Philadelphia kept the Giants winless.
Foles threw fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 25 yards to Brent Celek and 5 yards to DeSean Jackson as the Eagles (2-3) snapped a three-game losing streak by forcing three interceptions by Eli Manning in the fourth quarter.
David Wilson scored on a 5-yard run for the Giants (0-5) and Manning threw two touchdowns to Rueben Randle in the third quarter to give New York a 21-19 lead.
49ERS 34, TEXANS 3
SAN FRANCISCO -- Tramaine Brock intercepted Matt Schaub's first pass of the night and returned it 18 yards for a touchdown, Schaub threw three interceptions in all before the embattled quarterback got replaced in the fourth, and San Francisco pounded Houston.
The 49ers (3-2) are right back in the NFC West race with Seattle after the Seahawks (4-1) lost at Indianapolis. Each team has beaten the Texans (2-3) and lost to the Colts, and Seattle still must visit San Francisco on Dec. 8.
CARDINALS 22, PANTHERS 6
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona sacked Cam Newton seven times, once for a safety, and intercepted him on three occasions to overcome a sluggish offensive performance.
Daryl Washington, back after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, had two sacks and an interception for Arizona (3-2).
Carolina (1-3), playing for the first time since a 38-0 victory over the New York Giants two weeks ago, managed only Graham Gano's field goals of 22 and 51 yards.
RAMS 34, JAGUARS 20
ST. LOUIS -- Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes and Matt Giordano's 82-yard interception return was one of several big plays from the St. Louis defense against winless Jacksonville.
Austin Pettis' 31-yard TD catch with 5:45 to go was his second of the day and put the Rams (2-3) up by two scores. St. Louis, which had trailed by double digits in every game, established control with a 17-point second quarter after Jacksonville (0-5) had a pair of early leads.
