Lions kicker Matt Prater may be known for his consistency in kicking field goals, but he showed Sunday that he's capable of much more than that.

The Lions scored the first touchdown of the game during the first quarter, bringing the score to 7-0.

Matt Prater, seen here earlier in the season, threw a touchdown against Green Bay. Heading into a Week 17 matchup against the Detroit Lions, again for the second straight year, they have nothing to play for except pride.

DeShone Kizer is in for the Packers. That margin stood at the initial break.

Matthew Stafford threw for two touchdowns and 266 yards.


Green Bay has interviewed former Detroit Lions and Indianapolis Colts coach Jim Caldwell, multiple league sources told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

The passing game clicked despite a depleted receiving corps, with Kenny Golladay missing the relatively meaningless game with a chest injury.

At about that time the Packers confirmed that Rodgers did indeed suffer a concussion.

It was unclear exactly when Rodgers got hurt, though he lost his helmet during a sack on his second play of the game. That score remained until the final gun. Both teams had always been eliminated from playoff contention.
