Matthew Stafford threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns with a passer rating of 140.4.

The Lions concluded their season with a record of 9-7 while the Packers wrapped up their campaign with a 7-9 mark. “Thats what youve got to love about him.”.

The Packers surprised Detroit by opening with an onside kick they recovered, but didnt take advantage because Jamaal Williams bobbled a pass that was picked off by Jarrad Davis.

With Roberts out, Hakeem Valles will serve as the Lions No. 3 tight end on Sunday against the Packers.

Tate led the way with seven catches for 104 yards and a score.

The Packers played without many of their best players, and further hurt their changes with three turnovers in the first half.




This is the first time since 2008 the Packers are not going to playoffs. Randall Cobb scored the only touchdown of the afternoon for Green Bay, and caught a pass on the next play to complete a 2-point try.

The Vikings (9-2) took a huge step toward winning the NFC North, taking a three-game lead over the second-place Lions.

“We had a lot of opportunities, ” Hundley said.

Stafford finished with 27.12 FanDuel points, ending up as the second-best fantasy QB of the week.

“Im here to answer questions about the game, so lets not waste each others time, ” he said. Detroit cornerback Darius Slay, who started Week 17 leading the National Football League in interceptions, picked off his eighth pass of the season.

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