Detroit Lions inactive list vs. Green Bay Packers

  • The Packers drew the ire of opposing teams after they placed quarterback Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve. Speculation about Lions coach Jim Caldwell's job status continues unabated

Matthew Stafford threw three touchdown passes and the Detroit Lions beat the turnover-prone and short-handed Green Bay Packers 35-11 Sunday in a matchup of teams out of the playoff race.

The Packers (7-9) have a losing record for the first time since 2008, which is also the last time they didn't earn a spot in the playoffs. The Packers have three giveaways in the first half, including two in the red zone. Stafford then connected with Marvin Jones Jr. on a 3-yard TD pass to increase the bulge to 17-3 with 2:20 left until halftime.

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.

The Packers did get a look at journeyman quarterback Joe Callahan, who would naturally be the third-string quarterback with Aaron Rodgers in the lineup. However, despite these injuries, the Packers depleted offense will struggle to move the ball with Brett Hundley under center. "We just stopped ourselves". Aaron Rodgers has missed most of the season with a broken collarbone so the offense averages just 20.6 points and 330.7 yards per game.

"We just didn't take advantage of our opportunities today", said Hundley, who finished 14-of-24 for 172 yards and a 59.7 passer rating. He made a terrific back-shoulder catch for 26 yards later in the second half that helped set up Detroit's last touchdown.

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

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

In a statement provided to Stat and the Globe , he said that "addicts are notorious for lying, deflecting and trivializing". McGraw later scolded King-Parrish on the show for taking her daughter to buy drugs instead of taking her to the hospital.

"Last year, we couldn't buy a big play", Stafford said. "We'll use the offseason to grow from that and build off it".

"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.

Have a great new year, and stay safe.

Asked if he'll make a case to keep his job - he's the team's winningest coach in the Super Bowl era, after all - Caldwell suggested he'll let his record speak for itself.

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

The turnovers were the lowest point of the day and potentially the season for Hundley, who hadn't thrown an interception in a road start this season until Sunday.

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