Detroit, meanwhile, was close to full strength in what could be Jim Caldwell's final game as head coach. And after it, he didnt seem to give anyone an indication his future with the franchise was in doubt.

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams catches a short pass from QB Brett Hundley for a 27 gain Sunday against the Lions. Same tone, ” Whitehead said.

The division title isn't on the line in this matchup like it was Week 17 previous year, but the Lions can still finish their season with a 9-7 record and a 5-1 mark in the NFC North, and head to the offseason with some momentum. Golladay blows past Ha Ha for the 54-yard touchdown.

Then, with 3:02 to go in the half, a Detroit punt bounced off a Packer player and the Lions recovered at the 14-yard line. He was replaced by Joe Callahan late in the game. “We just stopped ourselves.”.

Matthew Stafford has thrown two touchdown passes. He even caught a two-point conversion pass from Golden Tate to cap off a 35-11 blowout win to move Detroit to 9-7.

McCarthy may make changes on his coaching staff this offseason, but he refused to talk about anything not related to the season-ending loss. Can Jarrad Davis, Teez Tabor, Kenny Golladay, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, Michael Roberts, Jamal Agnew, Jeremiah Ledbetter and Tion Green end their rookie campaigns on one final good note?

The disappointing season for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix didn't get a break in Week 17.

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

The Lions entered the game as 7-point favorites. Lions CB Nevin Lawson sat out the game due to a concussion.
