Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 323 yards and 3 touchdowns in Week 17's win over the Green Bay Packers.

The Detroit Lions scored 27 straight points to upend their longtime rivals, the Green Bay Packers, 35-11 at Ford Field on Sunday afternoon.

The Packers finish the season 7-9, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008.


To start the game, the Packers go with a surprise on-side kick and they recover it to steel a possession. 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. Golladay blows past Ha Ha for the 54-yard touchdown. Without Aaron Rodgers for much of the season, Allison's big-play ability that he flashed in 2016 was of no use to Brett Hundley, even when Allison was given playing time due to injuries. He was replaced by Joe Callahan late in the game. He caught a 2-point conversion pass after Ameer Abdullah, who had just run for a TD, took a direct snap and pitched it to Tate, who easily connected with Stafford in the end zone to put Detroit up 35-11 midway through the fourth quarter. CB Davon House had a shoulder injury and Williams was evaluated for a concussion late in the game.
