  • Final game of the season: Packers take on the Lions

The Lions finished with a 35-11 victory to complete the series sweep over the Packers. Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray (25) rushes during the first half of an NFL football game against the Detroit Lions, Thursday, Nov. 23, 2017, in Detroit.

It's the team's first losing record since 2008. Obviously, it didn't end the way we wanted it to.

Green Bay caught the Lions sleeping and went with an onside kick to open the game.

But the three drives collectively produced just three points, as two of them ended in red-zone turnovers.

Kenny Golladay had a 54-yard touchdown catch for the Lions (9-7) in what may have been head coach Jim Caldwell's final game with the franchise. Brett Hundley has thrown for 1,664 yards with eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions in his place. "We just stopped ourselves". "We didn't make the plays that needed to be made". The team features 11 players on the injury report, which doesn't include Aaron Rodgers, Ty Montgomery or Quinten Rollins, who were all expected to be major contributors at the start of the season. Even Emanuel Byrd caught two passes.

Ziggy Ansah led the Lions defense with three sacks. Jamaal Williams gained 82 yards rushing and caught three passes for 31 yards. 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.

Outside linebacker Reggie Gilbert and cornerback Lenzy Pipkins both followed up decent showings a week ago with a few notable plays here and there.

Study says more pregnant women are smoking marijuana for morning sickness
The legalization of marijuana may have contributed to the increase in use found by the study, KABC reported . The study suggests that more women tend to use marijuana sometimes to sooth anxiety and morning sickness.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Detroit is the favorite at home in this game, as the Lions are getting odds of -7 points against the Packers.

"Last year, we couldn't buy a big play", Stafford said.

He said he planned on going home with his family to celebrate New Year's Eve and that was going to be his focus on Sunday evening.

McCarthy concluded by saying he never had a problem with his team's work ethic, though he felt as a group it took longer than other years for the full week of preparation to "look the way it's supposed to", and for the veterans and young players to get on the same page.

"It was a lot of fun throwing the ball down the field some this year and those guys going and making big-time plays for me", Stafford said.

It will all be part of McCarthy's analysis in the coming days, weeks and months as the page eventually turns to 2018.

"History will tell you when you go through as many negatives as we did, we'll be better for it".
