Nov. 24, 1940 – Green Bay rolls up its greatest margin of victory over Detroit, downing the Lions 50-7. Detroit turns the ball over seven times, and the Packers convert those miscues into 34 points. From Andy Uram (38 yards rushing) to Cecil Isbell (13), seven backs carry the load as Green Bay outrushes Detroit 202 yards to 96. Defensively, Hal Van Every, Lou Brock, Uram and Tom Greenfield combine for five interceptions. Carl Mulleneaux also returns a fumble 25 yards for a touchdown. Detroit’s lone score comes late in the fourth quarter on a 48-yard pass from Cotton Price to Jack Johnson.
