  • One potential 49ers free-agent target is off the board

And after it, he didnt seem to give anyone an indication his future with the franchise was in doubt.

Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes and also caught a two-point conversion as the Detroit Lions closed out their season with a 35-11 romp over the depleted Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Ford Field. Same tone, ” Whitehead said. Stafford threw a 71-yard TD pass to Golden Tate late in the third, giving the Lions a 27-3 lead. 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 Lions concluded their season with a record of 9-7 while the Packers wrapped up their campaign with a 7-9 mark. Lined up in the slot, Golladay caught a pass over the middle and outraced the defense on the 54-yard play.

Then, with 3:02 to go in the half, a Detroit punt bounced off a Packer player and the Lions recovered at the 14-yard line. “We just stopped ourselves.”.

The last thing the Lions want is to suffer any significant injuries this late in the season. Can Jarrad Davis, Teez Tabor, Kenny Golladay, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, Michael Roberts, Jamal Agnew, Jeremiah Ledbetter and Tion Green end their rookie campaigns on one final good note?

Packers: WR Geronimo Allison left in the first quarter with a finger injury and returned to play for a banged-up team minus receivers Davante Adams, who signed a contract extension Friday, and Jordy Nelson because of injuries. Lions CB Nevin Lawson sat out the game due to a concussion.

Ameer Abdullah's 7-yard run accounted for the Lions' final touchdown.
