Lions beat Packers 35-11 and Caldwell stays calm, collected

Green Bay Packers K Mason Crosby kicks a successful onside kick recovered by S Jermaine Whitehead to begin the Week 17 matchup with the Lions.

The Detroit Lions will close their 2017 schedule with a final game at Ford Field against the Green Bay Packers.

The heavy speculation is that the Lions will be replacing head coach Jim Caldwell following Sunday's game. He came into Sunday ranked fourth in the National Football League in passing yards, tied for seventh in passing touchdowns and eighth in quarterback rating.

Later in the half, the Lions took advantage of a turnover on a punt return to score another touchdown.

Randall Cobb scored the only touchdown of the afternoon for Green Bay, and caught a pass on the next play to complete a 2-point try. Stafford passed for 361 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' 30-17 win at Green Bay on November 7. He even caught a two-point conversion pass from Golden Tate to cap off a 35-11 blowout win to move Detroit to 9-7.

The last thing the Lions want is to suffer any significant injuries this late in the season.

Detroit rookie tight end Michael Roberts was inactive because of conduct detrimental to the team, Caldwell said.

The disappointing season for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix didn't get a break in Week 17.

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.

The Lions entered the game as 7-point favorites. CB Davon House had a shoulder injury and Williams was evaluated for a concussion late in the game.
