(DETROIT) - Rookie FB James Jones ran for three touchdowns and Eric Hipple passed for two others as the Detroit Lions beat the Bay Packers 38-14, snapping a four-game losing streak. Jones, the Lions' No. 1 draft pick, churned out 64 yards on 19 carries with TD runs of 1, 13 and 1 yard. Jones' three touchdowns tied a club record shared by six others. The Packers, who last week embarrassed Tampa Bay 55-14, were held in check by a Detroit defense that intercepted two passes and recovered a Green Bay rumble. Hipple completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 235 yards with no interceptions. Green Bay QB Lynn Dickey hit on 21 of 37 for 214 and one TD. Jones capped a 78-yard, 14-play drive with a spinning 1-yard TD dive at 11:47 of the first quarter and raced around his own left end for a 13-yard score at 6:47 of the second quarter. Leonard Thompson took a Hipple toss at the 6-yard line and spun away from Green Bay S Mark Murphy to complete an 18-yard scoring play with 27 seconds remaining in the second quarter as the Lions opened a 24-0 halftime advantage.
