Stafford leads Lions past depleted Packers

Packers last game of season

More mistakes in the second quarter including two turnovers and muffed punt recovered by Detroit make it a sad first half for the Packers. There is heavy speculation that this will be Jim Caldwell's final game as Detroit's head coach, and that General Manager Bob Quinn will fire him regardless of the result. They did take a 3-0 lead on Mason Crosbys 41-yard field goal late in the first quarter, but Detroit tied it on the ensuing possession and took control in the second quarter. The Lions 9-7 record is likely not enough to save coach Jim Caldwell's job. Golladay blows past Ha Ha for the 54-yard touchdown.

Score is 20-3 Lions at the half. Golden Tate caught seven passes for 104 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown reception.

Jamaal Williams rushed 22 times for 82 yards and caught 3-of-5 targets for 31 yards in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions.

The Packers finally got on the scoreboard again on Hundley's 17-yard, fourth-down pass to Randall Cobb with 11:27 left. “We just stopped ourselves.”.

Detroit regained control 35-11 with 7:16 to go on a 7-yard touchdown run by Ameer Abdullah followed by a surprise two-point conversion pass from Tate to Stafford to set the final margin.

More news: Oakland Raiders have decided go forward without Jack Del Rio as coach

Detroit rookie tight end Michael Roberts was inactive because of conduct detrimental to the team, Caldwell said.

The 2017 season will go down as a disappointing one in Detroit.

Just before the interception WR Geronimo Allison injured a finger on his right hand.

Lions: RB Theo Riddick (ribs), CB Teez Tabor (shoulder) and S Don Carey (knee) were hurt during the game.
