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.
And that's what happens to start a meaningless Week 17 game: Packers go with the surprise on-side kick and they recover it to steal a possession. https://t.co/4botkL3gBQ— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) December 31, 2017
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.
Awful, just awful. Gollladay down the middle with a weak stiff arm blows by Ha Ha for the 54 yard TD.— Mark Daniels (@markdanielsWNFL) December 31, 2017
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.

Another wide open receiver, a feeble tackle attempt and a touchdown. Golden Tate goes 71 yards and shakes off House at the 10.— Mark Daniels (@markdanielsWNFL) December 31, 2017

Cobb's first three catches of the day on this drive, capped by 17 yard TD on 4th and 5.— Mark Daniels (@markdanielsWNFL) December 31, 2017
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.
Joe Callahan will finish the game. Brett Hundley finishes the day 14-for-24 with 172 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions and a 59.7 rating. https://t.co/plT0R1zR1x— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) December 31, 2017
