  • Detroit Lions maul Green Bay Packers in season finale, 35-11

Despite the victory, and posting his third winning season in four years, it appears that head coach Jim Caldwell has likely coached his last game for the Lions.

Not much from the Detroit Lions' final game this season will be of outcome, but the statistics still count, and Matthew Stafford found himself a pretty impressive one.

Matthew Stafford carved up the Packers for the second time this season, finishing 20-of-29 passing for 323 yards and three touchdowns.

The former Northern Illinois standout hauled in 2-of-3 targeted passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Lions 2017 season finale, showing promise for years to come. Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay all caught touchdowns. One quick stiff arm later and Golladay was gliding into the end zone for the touchdown.

Will the team retain Jim Caldwell?


Also inactive for Detroit are cornerback Nevin Lawson (concussion), wide receiver Jace Billingsley, running backs Zach Zenner and Dwayne Washington, offensive tackle Brian Mihalik and defensive tackle Rodney Coe.

This was the 75th game that the Detroit Lions have hosted on Thanksgiving Day. Jones had six catches for 109 yards and two TDs. Ameer Abdullah ran the ball eight times for 18 yards and a score.

The Packers finally got on the scoreboard again on Hundley's 17-yard, fourth-down pass to Randall Cobb with 11:27 left. Tate threw a two-point conversion pass to Stafford after Adbullah took the snap and pitched it Tate on the trick play.

The Lions entered the game as 7-point favorites.
