Detroit Lions finish season strong, defeat depleted Packers 35-11

He's cut down on the turnovers in recent years and was playing at an MVP level part of this season before the Lions fell out of the playoff picture.

Score is 20-3 Lions at the half. Detroit, meanwhile, was close to full strength in what could be Jim Caldwell's final game as head coach.

Detroit regained control 35-11 with 7:16 to go on a 7-yard touchdown run by Ameer Abdullah followed by a surprise two-point conversion pass from Tate to Stafford to set the final margin. The 62-year old coach took the helm of the Lions back in 2014 and has made the playoffs twice during his four-year tenure.

Lions: Stafford, with a lot of tape covering his right cleat, stayed in the game after hurting his right ankle on his second touchdown when DT Tom Johnson fell on him. The NFL highest paid player completed 20 of his 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns. Golladay blows past Ha Ha for the 54-yard touchdown.

Trevor Davis was the leading receiver with three catches for 56 yards.

Unfortunately, the Lions' issues with their running game continued. The reception pushed Tate over 1,000 yards for the second consecutive season. Attempting to prove he is worthy of a long-term deal this offseason, the upcoming free agent posted his third 3.0 sack game of the season.

When the job becomes open, keep an eye on Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, a hire that would allow the Lions to keep the offensive side of the ball mostly in place. Also posting a pick was Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay, who recorded his eighth interception of the season, tops in the NFL.
