The Lions' lone red zone appearance produced their lone score, a 13-yard touchdown pass from Drew Stanton to Will Heller on a tight end screen. Detroit spent only two plays in the red zone all game, but they luckily converted this one trip inside the 20 into a touchdown, which was enough to win.

Green Bay also had only one red zone appearance. Unlike the Lions, however, the Packers failed to score on their only trip inside the 20. Matt Flynn was picked off by DeAndre Levy in the end zone, ending the threat of a touchdown or even a field goal. The turnover turned out to be big, as the Packers were unable to get into the end zone at all during this game.
As the score suggests, red zone appearances were rare during this game. The downside is that the Lions' offense only had one during the game, but they did score a touchdown, so it wasn't all bad. That's especially true when you consider that the defense allowed Green Bay into the red zone only once and forced a turnover.
