Final game of the season: Packers take on the Lions

Final game of the season: Packers take on the Lions

On Sunday, the Packers were at Ford Field in Detroit taking on the Lions.

The Lions entered the game as 7-point favorites.

Roberts had appeared in all 15 games this season and had played 45 offensive snaps the past two weeks. Green Bay got on the scoreboard first for a 3-0 advantage thanks to Crosby's 41-yard field goal with exactly 5:00 showing on the clock in the opener.

The Packers (7-9) have a losing record for the first time since 2008, which is also the last time they didn't earn a spot in the playoffs. That score stood at the initial break.

The Raiders have fired Jack Del Rio
For the past near decade, Gruden has been an ESPN analyst, with constant rumors around where and when he would return to the game. The Oakland Raiders relieved Jack Del Rio of his coaching duties after their 30-17 Week 17 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Stafford passed for 361 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' 30-17 win at Green Bay on November 7. After Green Bay's Donatello Brown allowed a punt to hit him, the Lions recovered to set up Stafford's 3-yard pass to Marvin Jones to put Detroit up 17-3.

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

The second half saw more back-and-forth possessions until the Lions increased the gap to 27-3 on a 71-yard scoring strike from Stafford to Golden Tate at the 1:38 juncture of the third. 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 quarterback finishes the season with 29 touchdowns and 4,446 passing yards.

The heavy speculation is that the Lions will be replacing head coach Jim Caldwell following Sunday's game.
