Lions finish 6-10 after whipping Packers 31-0

Joe Philbin is serving as the Packers' interim head coach for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Separate reports tonight say that the Green Bay Packers have interviewed two former Indianapolis Colts head coaches, Jim Caldwell and Chuck Pagano, for their head coaching vacancy.

The Detroit Lions might not have anything to play for Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, but they did run one of the more surprising plays of the season. The Saints have clinched a first-round bye in the playoffs, so depending on their fate in the postseason, the Packers would also have a pick between 28 and 32 in the opening round. Because it's very possible the hit where he sustained the head injury came on the first series, it means that he went back in for two more series after the hit before he was evaluated.

It was Prater's first-ever touchdown pass and the first time he has thrown a pass since the 2012 season.

Rodgers had three passes completed for 26 yards before leaving the game.

DeShone Kizer entered the game as Rodgers's replacement. Adams finished the season with 111 catches, one shy of tying the single-season franchise record set by Sterling Sharpe in 1993.

The Lions had the game well in hand by then, with Zenner making it 21-0 following his touchdown run late in the second quarter.
