Packers close out season with a loss

DETROIT, Mich. (WBAY) -- The Packers close out this less than impressive season with a loss to the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.

It's the first time since 1991 the Lions swept the Packers. Final is 35-11 Lions.

With no chances left to make it into the playoffs for either team, the last game of the season was all about bragging rights, and the Lions earned it.

To start the game, the Packers go with a surprise on-side kick and they recover it to steel a possession.


The Lions get the ball back after an interception.

Just before the interception WR Geronimo Allison injured a finger on his right hand. He's in the locker room and is questionable to return.

After an incomplete from Jeff Janis, the Packers settle for the 41-yard field goal. Packers are up 3-0.


Later, the Lions make a field goal and the game is tied at 3 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix misses the tackle on Lions Kenny Golladay. Golladay blows past Ha Ha for the 54-yard touchdown.


More mistakes in the second quarter including two turnovers and muffed punt recovered by Detroit make it a sad first half for the Packers.
Score is 20-3 Lions at the half.


The start of the second half isn't much better for the Packers.

The last five possessions have ended with four sacks and the grounding penalty at the one.


Then another wide open receiver for the Lions as Golden Tate goes 71 yards for the touchdown.

Lions lead 27-3 as the third quarter comes to a close.


Meanwhile, Davon House had a shoulder injury and it questionable to return.


Hundley completes a pass to Cobb, who brings it in for a touchdown and get the 2 point conversion.


With about two minutes left in the game, back-up QB for Hundley, Joe Callahan, gets a chance to play and finishes out the game.

He ends the season 4 of 6 for 11 yards.
